At Smith & Williamson, Phelps will build on growing client and intermediary relationships as well as developing new business opportunities. His appointment is to develop and grow the firm’s combined family office services.

Joss Dalrymple, head of private client tax and business services at Smith & Williamson, added: “The development of our family office services is a key component of our business plan.”

Phelps has 20 years’ experience in the financial and wealth management industry. He was previously a director of the family offices services at Savills, prior to which he held a similar position at BNY Mellon.
