The best private equity and alternative asset advisers for ultra-high-net-worth individuals in 2023

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best alternative asset advisers for ultra-high-net-worth-individuals in the UK

By Spear's

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best alternative asset advisers for ultra-high-net-worth-individuals in the UK.

An ‘alternative asset’ can be anything that isn’t considered a conventional asset; the best examples of conventional assets are stocks and bonds. The field of alternatives can thus cover everything from investments in art to hedge funds, derivatives and commodities.

For high-net-worth (HNW) individuals with investable assets of £1 million or more, alternative assets form an essential component of a diversified investment strategy. Typically, alternative assets have high minimum investments and investment fees, making the importance of a good alternative asset adviser paramount.
