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.
To mark the 15th anniversary of Spear’s, we’ve partnered with Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE), a charity that aims to restore the world′s oceans to health.
The philosophy that underpins BLUE’s work is explained by HRH Princess Eugenie, who, as an ambassador for BLUE, co-authors an exclusive article for the magazine with Clare Brook, the foundation’s CEO. Ahead of COP26 the pair argue that there is still time to act on cli-mate change, if we pull together.
Several other elements of the magazine have a tinge of blue – from John Arlidge′s piece about the rise of ′blue bonds′, to Charles Clover′s essay on oysters and Edwin Smith’s inter-view with BLUE supporter, and king of superyachts, Peter Lürssen.
Elsewhere, Alec Marsh finds out how the OECD’s plans for a global minimum corporate tax rate will affect tax planning, in a feature leading our briefing on tax. Spear’s also asks the great and good some pressing questions about the meaning of wealth in 2021 – with stellar contributions from the likes of Yanis Varoufakis, Dame Stephanie Shirley, Sir Lloyd Dorfman, Lord Browne, Annastasia Seebohm, Mo Ibrahim and many more.
