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.
Crowned by a world exclusive interview with Prince Albert of Monaco, the latest edition of Spear’s is the most packed yet.
In a wide-ranging discussion the Prince issues an address to the world’s rich: get your money out of carbon. The interview – which is a landmark moment in Spear’s history – is not the only regal attraction of this edition: we also meet another royal, Sheika Badour of Sharjah, who talks about the power of the written word to change perceptions of the Arab world.
Elsewhere, we speak to Hilary Mantel about the third and final chapter in her massively successful Thomas Cromwell series, we hear from the architect Sir Norman Foster, who shows us around his new hotel Philadelphia. Lord Mervyn King writes our diary, and there are investigations into the state of wealth in Scotland and the comparative property markets of London and New York.
Speaking of bricks and mortar, this issue also presents the Spear’s Property Advisers Index; our selection of the very finest property experts and specialists for HNWs.
