Best collectibles experts for high-net-worth individuals in 2022

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best collectibles experts for high-net-worth individuals in the UK. The list features our Top Recommended advisers 

Collecting – from coins to comic books – can be one of life’s great pleasures. For high-net-worth collectors, finding and acquiring the very best and rarest items is often an important component of their collecting journey.

Here, Spear’s highlights the leading collectibles experts who can make that process easier, by stocking and sourcing the best examples of collectibles including coins, stamps, rare books, vintage watches and jewellery. These experts are world leaders in their fields and provide the service expected of high-net-worth advisers, making the process of acquiring and trading collectibles as smooth a process as possible. Together they have lifetimes of experience and can steer any high net worth collector through the market minefield.

Pom Harrington, for example, started out working in his family’s rare books shop at 14 as a Saturday boy, but now runs the on- and offline business from his base in Mayfair. Tom Bolt has fine watches that range from 75% off their retail price to more than £15,000 or, as he puts it ‘a potential divorce’. Katherine Schofield of Bonhams will help you find pop culture artefacts from Audrey Hepburn’s dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Jimi Hendrix’s guitar.
