The best property advisers in France and Monaco 2024

By Spear's

Monaco and France are global millionaire hotspots. The average wealth of an individual living in Monaco exceeds $10 million, according to Henley & Partners, while research from UBS found France is home to more millionaires than any other country except for the US and China. The world’s richest man, Bernard Arnault, is also French.

When these ultra-high-net-worth individuals want to put down roots, they turn to property advisers with extensive experience working across these jurisdictions.

The industry leaders included in the Spear’s ranking practise in France and/or Monaco and specialise in everything from finding ski chalets to managing properties in Monte Carlo. 

Although their geographic region is specific, their clients hail from all over the world, with HNWs from the US and UK, Middle East and South East Asia turning to these property advisers when finding homes in France and Monaco.
