Editor’s Letter


Edwin Smith


Things have changed since 2006, when the global economy was surfi ng the crest of a wave and founding editor William Cash had the bright idea to create a journal for the high-net-worth individuals who called London home – for at least part of the year.


W William is no longer


involved, but everyone associated with Spear’s today owes him a debt of thanks – as we do to the other Spear’s editors down the years: Josh Spero, Christopher Silvester and my predecessor Alec Marsh. (Christopher and Alec remain among our cadre of top writers, while Josh plies his trade for the FT.) Now, as we look ahead to the next chapter in Spear’s history, much augurs well. This year, Spear’s launched a new website, spears500.com, which means that – both in print and online – Spear’s is the leading resource for HNWs seeking expert advice. Our database of top advisers to HNWs is the largest, broadest and most detailed in the world. We have also launched a new podcast,


World of Wealth, in which I speak with entrepreneurs, HNWs and their most trusted advisers to unravel how the world of wealth really works. And, next year, we will unveil a redesigned editorial website, which will serve as the home of Spear’s journalism on the web.


hat good fortune, to be the editor presiding over this special 15th anniversary issue of Spear’s.


15TH IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BLUE MARINE FOUNDATION Why it’s time to invest in the world’s oceans


But Spear’s isn’t the only thing that’s changing. The very concept of ‘wealth’ and, by extension, wealthy people, has transformed in the 15 years Spear’s has been around. In an effort to acknowledge and understand this transformation, we asked leading fi gures from the worlds of entrepreneurship, academia, politics and philanthropy to consider what wealth means to them, the responsibilities that are incumbent upon those who have it, and how our collective conception of it is likely to evolve (p46). This will continue to be a major theme for Spear’s in the months and years ahead. In keeping with this, it gives me great pleasure to


ANNIVERSARY ISSUE Sink or swim announce that we have produced


this special edition of the magazine in partnership with Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE), a charity which aims to restore the world’s oceans to health. The philosophy that underpins BLUE’s work is explained on page 20 by HRH Princess Eugenie, who, as an ambassador for BLUE, co-authors an exclusive article for Spear’s with Clare Brook, the foundation’s CEO. Elsewhere, John Arlidge dives into the world of ‘blue carbon’ (p42), while I meet a king of the superyacht world – and one of the charity’s most important donors – Peter Lürssen (p56). Our stunning cover, by the way, is by neo-pop surrealist Philip Colbert, who has kindly donated this original artwork for the benefi t of BLUE. I hope you enjoy this special issue of the magazine.
