I run the Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth London and International team.
I have a background in corporate and private client law with particular interest in international structuring, investment structures, tax, family and private offices and investment of all sorts. I spent five years outside the legal profession as a banker at UBS in their UK Investment Banking team specialising in investment funds. I am interested in all areas of private wealth and making Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth the wealth advisor of choice in the UK.
My father who is a Judge.
I am fascinated by building a new type of business in the private wealth space from within a regulated law firm that has professional ethics at its core (not something you can say about the majority of regulated financial services businesses).
I love spending time with my family, and enjoy all sorts of sport - whether participating or watching (cycling, skiing, rugby, cricket particularly) – and anything that could be called a “country pursuit”.
“As Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth continues to go from strength to strength, the move to the Holborn office reflects our growth and commitment to providing our clients with a seamless and exceptional service across all areas of law.
“We are working more closely with our colleagues in Business Legal Services, in particular supporting business owners with their private wealth needs, and it makes perfect sense for us to work closer together.
“The team will be located alongside the market leading experts in our Family, Residential Property and Will, Trust and Estate Disputes teams, thereby strengthening our Private Wealth offering from a single central London location.”
“The Assets and Wealth Survey reflects the unwavering, even growing optimism that the public has in the housing market over other traditional forms of saving.
“However, the 2008 financial crisis should serve as a reminder that no market is ever safe. This, paired with the recent stagnation in house prices across the country, should only highlight the need to invest in multiple asset classes rather than relying on one which has traditionally been robust.
“When it comes to retirement and investing for the future, it is important to be aware of any overexposure to one asset class and maintaining a diverse portfolio of assets. While property is a perennial favourite of the British, as reflected by the ONS’ recent findings, there are several other areas of investment that will serve well for later life such as personal pensions, stocks and shares.
“Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth advises that in order to ensure a comfortable and safe retirement, clients should have a complete wealth, tax and legal plan in place in order to ensure their plans for later life come to fruition rather than placing ‘all eggs in one basket’ and risking exposure to losing wealth or assets.”
The fact is that one person’s loss is another person’s profit and while the UK is suffering from the economic fallout caused by Brexit, many people overseas are seizing the opportunity to grab bargain investment opportunities caused by the weak pound.
The fall in the value of sterling against the yuan since the EU referendum represents a healthy discount to Chinese investors looking to buy property in the UK. We’ve seen noticeably more interest from people in China and the Middle East looking for advice regarding investments here. Those investors we’ve encountered aren’t concerned about Brexit at all, they are savvy business people looking to make good deals. Some have cited well-publicised corporate investment in the UK since the referendum by businesses like Wells Fargo and GSK as clear indication that Brexit will not adversely affect the UK long-term.
With a new Government finally in place, the air of uncertainty and chaos which followed the Brexit vote has been replaced with a sense of stability. With sterling so low, all of a sudden bargain hunters have turned their eyes firmly back towards the UK.
