David Forbes

By Anna Solomon

Spear’s readers will be hard pressed to find a figure more attuned to the global property world than David Forbes, head of Savills’ private office.

‘We are a single point of contact into the wonderful world of Savills globally,’ he says of his department, where he makes himself available to UHNWs in their quest for ‘exceptional’ real estate.

‘You have to be a complete chameleon, doing what I do,’ he tells Spear’s. ‘You have to be as comfortable dealing with an old duchess in Tuscany as someone from the music industry in St Tropez as someone from the film business in Los Angeles and New York. You have to tune in to people. One size doesn’t fit all.’
