September / October 2013
If you've been feeling that the newspapers, magazines and websites that you read don't quite get you - well, that's why we set up Spear's. Spear's has been described by Ben Goldsmith as 'a cross between Forbes and Vanity Fair' - and that's a pretty good place to start.
Spear’s is a multi-award-winning wealth management and luxury lifestyle media brand. Our magazine, which comes out every two months, is read by the most successful people in Britain, from heirs and entrepreneurs on the Sunday Times Rich List to London's top lawyers and bankers.
Contributors have included HRH The Prince of Wales, entrepreneur Luke Johnson, Anne McElvoy of The Economist and dandy-about-town Nick Foulkes. We regularly cover topics like private banking, innovative philanthropy, the art market and luxury travel, all written for grown-ups.
In this edition of Spear’s, we ask what the Black Lives Matter protests mean for ‘the world of wealth’. It’s clear that the protests have provoked a dialog about racial issues in the workplace, and as we find out in our cover story, it could bring about lasting and meaningful change.
Elsewhere in the edition, other highlights include an exclusive interview with Chelsy Davy on her jewellery brand, a review of James Bond’s latest Land Rover, a report on the burgeoning Middle Eastern art world, and a diary from billionaire Jim Mellon, who talks about his quest for the elixir of youth.
We also have our annual index of the leading HNW tax and trust advisers. It’s been a hectic period for the profession during lockdown, and our selection shows that uncertainty proves the value of expertise.
