The best wealth managers for high-net-worth clients

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best wealth managers for high-net-worth individuals in the UK. The list features our Top Ten, Top Recommended, and Recommended advisers 

For high-net-worth (HNW) individuals with investable assets of £1 million or more, a wealth manager can help to organise ones financial affairs and maximise the efficiency of their investments.

The most effective wealth managers for high-net-worth individuals will go beyond simply handling a client’s investments, helping to develop a broader wealth strategy tailored to their individual needs and financial situation.

Wealth managers can also take into account a range of financial matters, including estate planning, succession, tax services and wealth structuring.

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 HNW wealth managers featured in the 2021 edition of the Spear’s Wealth Management Index are included in the table below, along with their Spear’s ranking, and, where possible, their self-reported minimum account size, team assets under management (AuM), the typical size of client accounts and fee-charging structures.
