One of the most experienced hands in the industry, William Drake co-founded Lord North Street with Adam Wethered in 2000 before selling the business to Sandaire in 2014. The duo have teamed up again, this time joined by fellow City stalwart Andrew Wimble to launch Owl Private Office, a strategic consultancy that promises to join the dots for time-short UHNWs, wealthy families and endowments. Drake is clear on its raison d’être. ‘The landscape has changed — it’s harder for wealthy families to get the overarching advice that they need from people, with no conflicts of interest,’ he explains. Owl is a first port of call, before the usual beauty parades and manager selection take place
