Robert Paul, the engaging executive director at London & Capital, notes that the allocation of globally dispersed assets used to fall on the shoulders of international families themselves. But there’s been a shift, he says: with reforms making that task much harder. Help is at hand, however, as that’s Paul’s niche. ‘I help international families manage their global wealth regardless of where they live,’ he says. ‘It gets invested in one coherent strategy.’ Paul is very proud of his firm’s future-friendly attitude: ‘We’re forward-looking — we see how other areas of the world are dealing with wealth management and that knowledge helps us to drive our proposition forward,’ he explains.
