Tilney Smith and Williamson has agreed terms for new offices at The Ewart building in the heart of Belfast’s business district in a bid to “keep pace with its ambitious expansion plans” for Northern Ireland.
Tilney Smith and Williamson will move to the new office at the 17-storey, refurbished heritage landmark development later this year, and the firm will occupy part of the 13th floor of the building.
The Ewart has reportedly been designed to meet standards of environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, which Tilney Smith and Williamson said will support its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.
The group, which employs around 40 people at its current Belfast offices in Linenhall Street, was formed in September 2020 from the merger of Tilney and Smith and Williamson.
The firm provides private individuals, families, institutions and charities with specialist financial planning advice and investment management services, and looks after £56bn of clients assets.
Chris McVeigh, managing partner and head of office in Belfast, said: “Agreeing terms for our new Belfast office at this prestigious building signals our intent to continue expanding our presence in Northern Ireland.
“The Ewart will provide a contemporary working environment for our staff, designed to high standards of sustainability and its location in the heart of the city, close to excellent transport links, makes it convenient for clients to access the specialist services we provide.”
Emma Sharp, partner and head of investment management in Belfast, added: “Following the merger between Tilney and Smith and Williamson in September 2020, we have ambitious plans to work with more clients and grow our service offering in Northern Ireland.”
