Tilney Smith & Williamson expands presence at Guildford’s Onslow House
19th July 2021
Tilney Smith & Williamson, the leading wealth management and professional services group which looks after £52 billion for its clients, has expanded its presence at Onslow House in the centre of Guildford following the re-location of teams from two other office sites in the city.
The move, which follows the merger between Tilney and Smith & Williamson in September 2020 and subsequent acquisition of HFS Milbourne in March 2021, means that the group now has more than 100 people from both its wealth management and professional services businesses co-located at the site in Onslow Street in heart of the city. The combined office is close to the Friary shopping centre, with car parks conveniently nearby and is a short walk from Guildford Station.
The recent acquisition of HFS Milbourne has brought 30 staff, including seven additional financial advisers, into the group, cementing Tilney Smith & Williamson’s position as the leading wealth manager in Surrey. HFS Milbourne’s expertise in holistic personal financial planning, investment advice, corporate financial planning and employee benefits advice, complements the range of services for both individuals and businesses which were already offered by Tilney Smith & Williamson from its Guildford office, including investment management, tax advice and other professional services.
Rob Chandler, Regional Managing Director at Tilney Smith & Williamson commented: “The relocation of our Guildford-based teams to a single office at Onslow House will give our growing client base in Surrey access to a broader range of complementary services from our specialised advisers, working together from a single location. The move also reinforces our position as a prominent wealth management and professional services employer in Guildford while also providing a platform for our continued expansion in Surrey.”
