Banking and finance
The universally respected standard of law in England & Wales, alongside the universality of the English language and the UK's geographic standpoint between the Americas and Asia, all contribute to the UK's position as a favoured location for multinational companies, as much as for successful people and their businesses.
We have been based in London, in the United Kingdom, since 1896. Over the past 120 years, our perspective has broadened to a fully global one, but much of our strength is based on the firm foundations of the English courts, London’s status as an international finance hub, and the UK’s business-friendly tax and regulatory policies.
The UK’s decision to leave the EU’s single market surprised many, but it looks likely that the country will continue to be function as a destination of choice for the world’s high net worth population, as well as the place where their money is managed and they can seek the protection and certainties of the courts.
