Tilney and Smith and Williamson also announced the company will be consolidated under a new name in the summer, rebranding as Evelyn Partners.
Chris Woodhouse, group chief executive, said: “2021 was a landmark year for the group, in which we successfully combined Tilney and Smith and Williamson, while at the same time achieving our best year ever for both organic growth and underlying profitability.
“Our increased scale, combined with strong new business generation across both our Financial Services and Professional Services businesses, has meant that it has also been a significant year in terms of financial performance.”
He added: “We also made significant progress with our digital transformation agenda. This has included the creation of a leading-edge and scalable financial services platform on which we have begun successfully migrating clients. We aim to roll-out our app and digital portal to more of our clients during 2022.”
