The Year in Spear’s 2020: Our ten most-read pieces

Here are the ten most-read pieces on the Spear’s websites from this year like no other

What a year. Without falling into the tropes of many a yearly round-up, it’s safe to say 2020 will be one we look back on as a potentially epoch-changing year. Here at Spear’s, we have attempted to capture these strange times through the lens of the HNW world.

We present now the ten most-read features (in no particular order), which in many ways reflect the predominant themes on the minds of HNWs navigating their way through the pandemic – as well as some choice pieces providing relief from what has at times been a grinding news-cycle.

From the Spear’s index of trusted HNW advisers, through to the best schools and eminent thinkers of our time, we hope that you have enjoyed our coverage this year of the themes and stories that have shaped a year like no other.

From all of us here at Spear’s, a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
