The best property investment, finance, management and private office service providers in 2024

By Spear's

Property is often an integral component of an investment portfolio for high-net-worth individuals. But building and growing such a portfolio requires specialist expertise.

In the Investment, Finance, Management and Private Office Service Providers Index, Spear’s presents those advisers who have access to the best investment deals and opportunities; innovative advice on financing and managing real estate projects; and experience in delivering return on investment.

Private office service providers, which are gaining in global prominence both as standalone entities and as organisations affiliated with large real estate firms, can serve as a one-stop shop for HNWs seeking to build and refine their property portfolios.

In selecting and ranking property investment, finance, management and private office service providers, the Spear’s Research Unit conducts extensive research of the market, including interviews with well-informed observers, industry insiders and of course the advisers themselves. These take place both face-to-face, and on video and telephone calls. Candidates for inclusion are asked to fill in a form to provide data and a description of their work and client base. In finalising its selections and rankings, the Spear’s Research Unit employs a proprietary methodology that includes a weighted scoring system. This takes into account factors including an adviser’s standing, reputation, client base, recommendations and testimonials, the firm they represent, their level of engagement with the process and certain industry-specific criteria.
