‘It’s very much been a question of people trying to make sure that their affairs are organised in a flexible and agile way so that they can deal with whatever comes at them from a political point of view,’ says Lisa Spearman, who has been a partner at Mercer & Hole since 2003. ‘I’ve got a number of clients who are leaving because they dislike the uncertainty of Brexit or their immigration status is uncertain.’ When Spear’s asks about what one can do to protect assets from political risk, she responds, after a pause: ‘It’s actually more about what you don’t do. You don’t, for example, set up a trust when you might move to a non-trust-friendly jurisdiction.’
