EY London Appoints New Partner in Private Client Services
Ernst & Young has appointed Andrew Tailby-Faulkes as a partner in its London Private Client team. Andrew will focus on growing personal tax advisory services to high net worth clients from entrepreneurial businesses and the financial sector. This is a newly-created position, reflecting the overall growth of the team, which has more than 30 specialists providing private client, tax-led services.
Andrew has 20 years experience of advising high net worth personal clients. He trained at KPMG and subsequently became a tax partner at accountant Smith & Williamson. Before joining EY, he was a director of Royal Bank of Canada’s Global Private Bank, having been a director of Abacus, the Channel Islands-based fiduciary and wealth management group, which RBC acquired in November 2005. At Abacus/RBC, Andrew was a key figure in the development of the Group’s onshore private client base.
Andrew said, “This is a very exciting time to be joining EY’s Private Client team, which has enjoyed major client wins and has also capitalised on the explosive growth in the private client sector. I’m thrilled to be joining an organisation which has such exceptional talent and an outstanding international tax network and track record.”
EY’s London Private Client Services recently made two other appointments – Ann Gurney, who has joined as a senior manager from BDO Stoy Hayward, and Elizabeth Roberts from accountant Wilson Wright. The division is planning a significant UK recruitment drive over the next three years, reflecting its success to date and growing demand for its services.
