Award-winning wealth manager opens new office in Maidstone

23 May 2018
 

Leading UK private client investment and financial planning group Tilney is pleased to announce that it has opened a new office in Maidstone, Kent. Tilney manages over £24 billion of assets for private investors and charities and has won many awards, including the best advisory service at the 2018 City of London Wealth Management Awards.

The new office is located in the Turkey Mill Business Park, which is set in 20 acres of landscaped grounds and located half a mile from the town centre. Initially ten staff will be based at the new Tilney office, including four financial planners who have almost 70 years’ experience between them. Tilney has opened the new office with further expansion in mind, with the intention of recruiting an additional financial planner and an investment manager to the team by the end of the year.

David Cummins, who heads up the Tilney Maidstone office, commented: “Recent changes to pensions and tax allowances mean there has never been greater demand for expert financial advice combined with a well-managed investment approach to navigate very uncertain markets. Having already established an excellent client base in Kent, the opening of Tilney’s new Maidstone office is a major milestone in achieving our ambition of becoming the most trusted wealth manager in the South East. The new office will enable us to better support and advise clients and their families locally and to grow our presence further. In particular we look forward to further developing close relationships with region’s leading accountants and solicitors.”
