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.
Can Europe’s economy survive in the face of low growth, high debt and an ageing population? Or has it already entered a catastrophic ‘doom-loop’? That’s the what the new Spear’s cover story sets out to establish – through original reporting from across the continent and exclusive interviews with entrepreneurs, economists and wealth managers.
Elsewhere, in an exclusive interview, the Francis Fukuyama warns that ‘there may not be a Britain at the end of this crisis’ and we speak to Brexit Party MEP Anne Widdecombe about her return to front-line politics.
Also in Issue 70 of Spear’s: The Spear’s Tax Advisers Index presents a selection of the very best fiscally-minded lawyers and accountants, while the performance artist, musician and cultural polymath Amanda Palmer discusses modern funding of the arts.
What’s more, there’s a review of Gordon Ramsay’s new Mayfair hotspot, Lucky Cat, and Kevin McCloud imparts the wisdom gleaned from his 20 years at the helm of Grand Designs in our Midas interview.
