Evelyn Partners, the wealth manager rebranded from Tilney Smith & Williamson in mid-June, has appointed Nick Reeves as a partner in its London financial planning team. 

Reeves re-joins the business from Deutsche Bank, where he spent four years as head of UK wealth planning and intermediaries. 

Prior to this Reeves was a partner at Tilney in its London financial planning team before the company merged with Smith & Williamson in September 2020. 

He has also worked as a wealth adviser at Barclays Wealth.  

Evelyn Partners said Reeves will report to firm partner Mark Pollock and help grow the firm’s international financial planning service, including pre-arrival planning for clients looking to come to the UK, structuring advice for clients looking to leave the UK and ongoing advice to UK resident but non-domiciled clients. 

Pollock said he was very pleased to welcome Reeves back to the business to help expand its international offering.

“Nick has a considerable amount of experience and expertise in this space and I know he’ll be instrumental in helping us continue to grow our presence in the market,” he said. 

Reeves said the business has been on a “transformational journey” in the four years that he has been away and that he was excited to re-join the business following the launch of the new brand. 

“We have a real opportunity to lead the industry in the UK and are perfectly placed to provide top quality advice to clients,” he said. 

Meanwhile, Evelyn Partners, alongside CliftonLarsonAllen, announced last week (30 June) the formation of CLA Global, a global accounting and advisory organisation. 

In a statement released by both firms, they said they expect CLA Global to rank among the Top 15 such organisations in the world, based on fee income.

CLA Global is expected to announce additional high-profile counterparts and member firms later in the year.
