‘Stick to our knitting’ is the mantra that Berenberg’s head of UK wealth and asset management, Richard Brass, relays to Spear’s when asked to describe his approach to the current climate. ‘We’re really pleased with Berenberg’s recent progress and potential, particularly in the current market environment.’

Brass has presided over a very well-oiled machine since joining the German bank back in 2011. The firm’s advisers act as ‘knowledge curators’ for their client, leveraging the firm’s considerable expertise across asset management, corporate banking and investment banking – its 100 stock analysts make Berenberg one of the largest equity and economic research teams in Europe.

‘Having so much expertise in one family means we have short lines of communication to specialists that can help provide in-depth analysis about financial markets,’ Brass explains. ‘This is a distinct advantage in the current market environment, where it is increasingly common to be addressing a wide range of strategic opportunities for clients.’ Along with the broad panel of financial advisory services, this knowledge advantage also results in being able to provide a truly comprehensive service for clients who express a variety of needs.

‘Alongside our organic growth strategy, it also ensures we can adapt quickly to changing market conditions, regulations and client requirements,’ concludes Brass.
