Financial services firm move HQ to new St Paul’s home
Financial and professional services firm Smith & Williamson is moving its London headquarters to a new office on Gresham Street near St Paul’s Cathedral.
The accountancy, tax and wealth management specialist will be relocating from its existing offices at 10 and 25 Moorgate to new offices on the fifth floor of the Gresham St Paul’s development.
Comprising 170,000 sq ft of green office space over nine floors with views of the iconic cathedral, the new development is the work of real estate developer Stanhope and the Swiss investment group AFIAA, and has an expected completion date of Q3 2020.
Kevin Darvishi, leasing director at Stanhope, said: “We look forward to welcoming Smith & Williamson to Gresham St Paul’s, a sustainable development which will provide a light and air-filled state-of-the art working environment.
“The fantastic facilities within the building, including the Wi-Fi enabled café, reception and business lounge on the ground floor, will provide an enhanced occupier experience and further bolster the City of London’s reputation as a global centre.”
David Cobb and Kevin Stopps, co-chief executives at Smith & Williamson, added: “This is great news for Smith & Williamson and is a significant milestone for our business that aligns fully with our long-term growth ambitions.”
“The decision to relocate in London is one we have considered extremely carefully but, after a rigorous assessment and having given careful consideration to the needs of both our people and our clients, our board is confident it is the right one for Smith & Williamson.”
