Smith & Williamson plans to open a Dublin-based private client wealth management service this spring.
The move follows last years merger with Oilver Freaney & Company, a firm of accountants, tax and business advisers also based in Dublin.
Smith & Williamson will continue to advise clients from Ireland on investment issues from its head office in London until the Dublin service is operational.
"Private clients in Ireland have endured a very difficult couple of years, so we believe that our approach and expertise will be a welcome alternative in the face of an uncertain future," said Christopher Kenny, director with Smith & Williamson Investment Management.
Kenny will lead the new service going forward.
The professional and financial services group has offices in London, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin and Glasgow as well as others and provides investment management, financial advisory and accountancy services to private clients plus companies.
