About us

Leading independently-owned providers of investment management, accountancy, tax, corporate and financial advisory services to private clients, corporates, professional practices, and non-profit organisations. With 12 offices in Ireland, the UK and Jersey, 1,700 people and an international capability in over 100 countries, our aim is to provide an innovative global service.

Our Dublin offices have over 70 staff which comprises financial and business services professionals, tax advisors, private client investment managers and support staff. We provide a unique blend of business and personal financial services ranging from tax, audit and corporate finance to personal financial planning and investment management.

Our skill is to link our many service offerings to provide 'joined up' thinking, delivered in an approachable and pragmatic way with a high degree of director involvement.

Since our foundation over a century ago, Smith & Williamson has been managing the financial affairs of private clients and their business interests. We are one of the top ten largest firm of accountants* in the UK and our investment management business has over £18bn (€20bn) of funds under management and advice (as at 31 December 2016).

Our prime aim is to help our clients achieve their financial ambitions, both corporate and personal. Our clients are varied - private individuals, mid-large businesses, professional practices and non-profit organisations.

Our business spans 12 offices in the UK, Ireland and Jersey, with locations in the City of London, Belfast, Bristol, Birmingham, Cheltenham, Dublin, Glasgow, Guildford, Jersey, Manchester, Salisbury and Southampton, and an international capability in over 100 countries through membership of Nexia International (the 10th largest international accounting and consulting network) and M&A International.

In an award-winning business as diverse as ours, professionalism and teamwork are key. We recognise that clients and intermediaries take comfort from knowing that they can easily reach senior people and decision-makers in our organisation who are able to understand their needs and objectives.

Our business thrives on its people - a pool of highly talented and enthusiastic individuals who deliver a broad and innovative range of services, but without compromising on delivering a genuinely director-led service. Technical excellence underpins how we deliver our services and our teams are dedicated to offering practical financial solutions.

People may ask what sets us apart from our competitors; put simply, it's our people - ambitious, talented and enthusiastic professionals who enjoy what they do and relish the opportunity to work together and with our clients.
