Bart Peerless

Description

‘When unexpected events happen, clients reach for their trusted advisers,’ says Bart Peerless. ‘A global pandemic makes clients reflect and think about the future.’ Many of Charles Russell Speechlys’ top-tier clients seek the advice of Peerless, who has more than 25 years’ experience advising HNWs, trustees and beneficiaries as well as ‘some of the world’s wealthiest’ and most complex families. A typical client has assets in the ‘multi-billion’ or ‘multi-hundred million’ range.

‘Communication really sits at the heart of it,’ he says, when asked what is important in tax and trust advice. As well as that, he says, it is crucial to ‘be able to reach out to people - and understand what motivates them’.
