If there’s one way to describe Robert Willsdon, it’s ‘hugely busy’. He’s got three young children, loves his skiing, and in the summers can be seen playing cricket. He’s also known for looking after a number of film stars who ‘work on both sides of the camera’, although he’s not about to divulge their names. He started at Merrill Lynch before becoming part of Julius Baer in the takeover of Merrill Lynch’s US wealth management business, and he prides himself on his good client service — even if it annoys his wife when the family is on holiday or he’s in Sussex. As for these current turbulent times, he says his clients have remained ‘calm as long as they are kept informed’.
