Top Five Global Strategic Advisers
Paddy Dring is global head of prime sales at Knight Frank – and it’s a position hard-earned for the likeable adviser. ‘I have worked for Knight Frank for 29 years in the country business but more than 25 years in the international residential business,’ he says. For Dring, it’s all about providing ‘HNWI and UHNWI clients and their families a single point of contact’. He sits atop the business and has a bird’s-eye view of its activity – and there are positives to be seen. ‘The key European cities, including Paris, Frankfurt, Berlin and Madrid, have all witnessed a combination of strong domestic and international demand and in excess of 10 per cent growth over the last year,’ he explains.
