Tilney Smith & Williamson, the leading wealth management and professional services group, has signalled its intention to continue expanding its Exeter office following the appointment of Neil Sparkes as a Financial Planner. The news comes on the back of the recent appointments of Neil Thornton as a Financial Planner and Will Matthewman as an Investment Manager.  

Neil has more than 30 years’ financial services experience and joins from Francis Clark Financial Planning where he worked initially as a Paraplanner and latterly a Financial Planner. Prior to Francis Clark he worked as a Financial Planner at Barclays Life and NFU Mutual. He is a member of the Personal Finance Society and the Chartered Insurance Institute.    

Tilney Smith & Williamson’s Exeter office, which is based in Sterling Court in the heart of the city, has long provided clients in the West Country with locally delivered, personal financial planning. Earlier this year the group also added a locally based investment management capability in Exeter for the first time following the appointment of Will Matthewman as an Investment Manager.   

Mark Wilkins, Managing Partner of Tilney Smith & Williamson’s Exeter office, commented: “I am delighted that Neil is joining Tilney Smith & Williamson at this exciting time for our Exeter office. As we continue to see growing demand for our services from across the West Country, it is essential that we continue to expand our team by appointing good people like Neil to work with our clients. Neil has extensive financial services experience and I know he will bring an enormous amount to our business and clients.”  

Neil added: “I am extremely pleased to be joining such a fantastic organisation whose vision and values are closely aligned to my own. I look forward to providing clients both new and existing with the best possible service and financial advice to help them achieve their financial goals.”
