Over the last 12 months Garbutt + Elliott has been focused on strengthening its private client service alongside its Garbutt + Elliott wealth management division which has also welcomed new recruits earlier this year.
The appointments of Richard Major and Kim Sinton play a pivotal role in enhancing the expertise offered to private clients and the firm’s excellent reputation in this field, providing trusted advice on all aspects of individual tax compliance and financial wealth planning, often working across two or three family generations.
