Kingston Smith changes its name to Moore Kingston Smith

Kingston Smith is delighted to announce that, from 9 September 2019, the top 20 UK business advisory and accountancy firm will be known as Moore Kingston Smith.

The new name reflects the firm’s membership of the Moore Stephens International network, which is today rebranding to become known as Moore.

Kingston Smith joined the global advisory and accounting network in May 2019, enhancing its offering to clients at an international level, and strengthening the development and growth opportunities of the firm and its people.

The addition of the Moore name will enhance Kingston Smith’s international presence and reach, while retaining the firm’s valuable heritage and brand recognition.

Maureen Penfold, Managing Partner of Moore Kingston Smith, comments: “Helping our clients thrive has always been central to Kingston Smith’s identity and purpose. Being internationally recognised as the London firm of the Moore Global network will position us to provide even greater support to our clients in reaching their global aspirations.”

She adds: “Our heritage and independence is important to us as a partnership, as it is to our clients and our people. Our commitment to our core values, which place clients at the centre of everything we do, is shared by the Moore network, whose vision is to become the most respected accounting network in the world.

“The natural alignment between our brands has made adding the Moore name to Kingston Smith a natural next step in our journey – one which will further strengthen our international presence and reach.”
