Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best providers of property investment, finance and private office services. The list features our Top Ten, Top Recommended and Recommended advisers
For high-net-worth individuals, a strategic portfolio of property investments is crucial. But it can only be built and maintained with the highest-quality specialist advice.
The best property finance and investment advisers can source the best opportunities and facilitate the most suitable deals. Private office services providers – which are becoming more popular both as standalone entities and as organisations affiliated to large firms – can serve as a one-stop shop for an HNW’s property portfolio.
Spear’s publishes annual rankings of the top private client advisers and service-providers to HNWs. These are drawn up on the basis of peer nominations, client feedback, telephone and face-to-face interviews, data supplied by firms, as well as information gathered by the Spear’s editorial and research teams.
The investment, finance and private office advisers featured in the 2021 edition of the Spear’s Property Advisers Index are included in the table below, along with their Spear’s ranking and ‘focus’.
