Our new name
In summer 2022 we merged our Tilney and Smith & Williamson brands into one, and renamed as Evelyn Partners.
Why we merged Tilney and Smith & Williamson into one brand
Having merged our businesses into one, we are now ready to operate under a single brand to offer our clients the best of everything we do, including a joined-up Wealth Management and Professional Services offering that is unrivalled in the marketplace – as well as access to greater specialist expertise, the group’s offices in 25 towns and cities, and our award-winning online service, Bestinvest.
While our name is changing and our range of offerings is expanding, our commitment to delivering a world class experience to our clients remains as strong today as it always has been.
Why we've chosen our new name
As we looked into the future of our combined businesses, we wanted a name that was as authentic as our longstanding heritage and as personal as our service.
A name that could fully reflect the distinctiveness of our offering and purpose – to place the power of good advice into more hands – and highlight the values we stand for: Personal, Partnership and Performance.
Evelyn Partners is inspired by a particularly meaningful event in our rich history. It is named after Evelyn Gardens, the London address from which one of our founders pioneered the expansion of our business in 1893, determined to place the power of good advice into ever more hands.
While rooted in heritage, Evelyn is timeless, contemporary, and easy to remember. Both a surname and a first name, and gender-neutral, it reflects the versatility of our offering, and our commitment to delivering a personalised service to all.
We have combined this with Partners because it conveys our commitment to building long-term, valued relationships with our clients.
