Chris Priestley (00:17): Well good morning everyone, a pleasure to welcome you all to our attitudes to wealth conference. Now, we've got a lot to cover today. We hope that today's conference will be just the start of an ongoing dialogue on the use and perception of wealth.

Nigel Sprunt (00:33): Good morning everyone. We're living in times where there's a lot of admiration, there's envy, there's resentment towards successful people - wealth creators.

Chris Priestley (00:47): Ladies and gentlemen, Andrew Marr.

Andrew Marr (00:51): Thank you very much indeed for that. [skips ahead] ...the extraordinary atmosphere we're in right at the moment. What's going on and what's going to happen next?

(01:11): So one of the highlights for me today was the opportunity to listen to Andrew Marr, with all his insight and experience, as to what the future holds for us.

(01:20): My greatest takeaway was that we will get through this. We've been here before, and it does resolve itself eventually.

(01:27): I've been very inspired listening to everybody. The engagement between young people and some older people like Grace Blakeley I thought was amazing.

(01:38): Today you have really touched on the most important point - that people really want to give meaning to wealth.

Nigel Sprunt (01:45): People have been coming up to me and saying that these are real issues that we really need to be dealing with, and we're really glad that we've started the debate.

(01:52): It was extremely well put together. Seeing Andrew Marr in action was absolutely fabulous, tackling lots of very topical issues. I just thoroughly enjoyed it, thank you.

Andrew Marr (02:06): I've got a final anti-warning. My anti-warning is keep calm and remember your history. This is not the most dramatic moment in terms of left-right politics, or in terms of national choices we've had to make. Again and again over the last hundred years we've had moments when people have started to panic and think "It's all over for Britain. Everybody earning any kind of income has got to get out fast" and time and time again we have found a way through, and we'll find a way through this time too.

As the law firm for success, we understand our clients’ needs and their position in the world. We believe that perceptions of wealth are changing and that now is the right time to take a step back and gain a wider view of how different people across the world view wealthy families and individuals. As wealth inequality continues to intensify, positive and well-informed engagement by the most wealthy in society could make a vital difference to our shared future.
