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 issue, we interview the man behind Patek Philippe, Thierry Stern, about the future of the brand. In other leading luxury brands, John Arlidge speaks to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos. Editor Edwin Smith sits down with Valerie Rockefeller about how she hopes to put ′obscene concentrations of wealth′ to good use. And in our regular Midas interview slot, Spear′s staffer Aisha Alli speaks to Julie Montagu, Viscountess Hinchingbrooke. Our cover story by deputy editor, Chris Hawes, addresses one of the most important features of the Economic Crime Bill that was rushed through parliament in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine: the role of Companies House. The Briefing section focuses on family law and HNW divorce, covering our own survey of top family lawyers, the future of litigation funding, ′birdnesting′ and the UK′s top five divorce settlements. This issue′s Acradia covers Nick Foulkes’ meeting with the ‘starchitect’ Thierry Despont; Daisy Dunn on the Romans’ own inflation crisis; Sam Leith on Apple TV′s Severance and work/life balance; Edwin Smith on Swiss watch brand Richard Mille’s sojourn in St Barth; Johanna Derry Hall on exclusive experiences for whisky aficionados; and John Arlidge on the Financial Times’ decision to euphemistically rename How to Spend It, its magazine about luxury items, as HTSI.
