‘We’ve always provided more than just tax [advice] — it’s more an overall approach to looking after our clients’ financial affairs,’ says Mackintosh. ‘More and more clients are wanting to be seen to be doing the right thing. What’s changed is the complexity of the tax systems in all jurisdictions, and trying to balance that, to make sure they are fully compliant, has become a much more difficult job.’ A PwC man for 35 years, Mackintosh is the powerhouse’s head of private client services for EMEA. He acts for eight of the top 100 families in the Sunday Times’ rich list. UHNWs can talk to him about ‘all aspects’ of their finances, but Mackintosh also has a niche advising international law firms.
