Wealth management services group Evelyn Partners has agreed terms for offices in Glasgow, Scotland.
This announcement brings the Evelyn Glasgow teams together in a single location that will support its growth plans in Scotland. The merged group, from Tilney and Smith & Williamson, has deep roots in Glasgow from 1881.
Evelyn, which looks after £52.7bn of assets for its wealth management clients and £10bn for its fund governance and administration clients, will make this its second biggest office in the group.
