It has a network of offices across 30 towns and cities in the UK, as well as the Republic of Ireland and the Channel Islands.

Gross inflows to the firm climbed 50% to £2.1bn in Q4 2023, according to a trading update published last week.

Full year operating income rose 14.6% to £183.2 million (2022: £159.8 million).

During 2023 the firm acquired four accountancy and tax advisory firms including in Q4 the acquisitions of Creaseys in Tunbridge Wells and Harwood Hutton in Beaconsfield.
