Private Clients

Private clients are at the core of our business.  Since our founding in 1978 we have worked with high net worth families, family offices and professional advisors to preserve wealth from generation to generation, assist in orderly succession planning, and guard against political and economic uncertainty.

As a privately owned and truly independent organisation, with coverage in more than 25 internationally recognised jurisdictions, we are free of conflicts of interest and jurisdictional bias, enabling us to work with a wide range of best-in-class partners and provide optimal solutions for our clients. Our experienced professional personnel are focused on providing top class service and building long-term trusted relationships.
