Here, Editor Vicky Mayer, gives us an insight into what to expect in this issue…
Brexit is a funny beast. For those of us whose wealth is linked to the pound, the next two years look set to be a rollercoaster ride. But if you’re one of the fortunate few who gets more pounds for your buck now, well lucky you. Brexit and its effects, good and bad, are a great example of how political and economic decisions made at a local level can cause ripples around the world, and in this era of increasing globalisation it pays to study the machinations of the global economy.
One man who understands how world economics can dramatically affect business is Dickie Bannenberg of Bannenberg & Rowell, one of the leading yacht and interior design companies in the UK. I had the pleasure of meeting Dickie at his Fulham headquarters where he gave a fascinating snapshot of how the world of super yachts – and the people who buy them – has changed over the past 40 years.
And for those lucky readers who can make a killing on the weak pound, now’s the time to invest in London’s coolest new pied à terres. From Chelsea to St James’s, they’re the perfect pitstops.
Whatever your fortunes may have been this year, here’s to an exciting and prosperous 2017.
