Will Thompson will join Evelyn Partners in Bristol as a financial planning director. He joins from Rathbones where he spent close to four years as a senior financial planner.

Previously, Thompson worked for 11 years at Old Mill where he was associate director. He holds experience in advising HNWIs, families, and trustees in a range of planning and tax-based areas.

Richard Mikdadi, managing partner in Evelyn Partners’ Bristol office commented: “We are delighted that the Bristol office continues to attract talent of Will’s calibre from the local market. We are confident that his appointment is another boost to an already exceptionally strong financial planning team.”

Thompson added: “I am thrilled to join the team in Bristol. The breadth of services and expertise here, and the scale of the regional presence, were particularly attractive factors to me in joining Evelyn Partners.”
