The Belfast office of Smith & Williamson, the financial and professional services group, is to rebrand from Cunningham Coates to Smith & Williamson, the corporate brand used across the firm’s other 11 offices.

Smith & Williamson’s Belfast office originates from the amalgamation of stockbrokers Josias Cunningham & Co Limited and William F Coates & Co in 1991, both of which had traded for more than a hundred years. In December 2002, Cunningham Coates became part of Smith & Williamson.

Cunningham Coates is located in the heart of Belfast and provides a comprehensive investment management and financial planning service to a wide client base including private individuals, charities and other institutions.

Jonathan Cunningham, Belfast investment management partner and whose great-great-grandfather founded Josias Cunningham & Co in 1843, commented: “The Smith & Williamson name is already familiar to our clients who have benefited from the group’s depth and strength over the past 18 years. Fully adopting Smith & Williamson’s branding across the Belfast office ensures that our clients understand their ability to access the very best support across the breadth of Smith & Williamson’s specialities. However, clients can be assured that the personal service they have been accustomed to won’t change.”
