Answers to the questions that matter

As life becomes more complex and fast-paced, we want to understand as much as possible about the world around us. That’s why we never stop asking questions, so we can give our clients the best advice in life, and help them see the world from interesting new perspectives.

Making Life’s Questions with Annie Leibovitz

In our Life’s Questions series, we ask people with a huge range of talents and expertise for their insight on everything from building businesses to making a difference in the world.

Just as we help our clients find out what they want and need, Annie Leibovitz strives to understand who her subjects really are. That’s how she creates the unique, personal portraits she’s become renowned for - and why she’s the ideal partner as we ask some of life’s most important questions.

A portrait is not like any other kind of photograph. You try to prepare for every sitting - to learn as much about your subject as you can. But it’s the time together with them that’s the heart of the picture.

In the studio with Joss Stone

We also created a film to reflect the questions women face when it comes to their future, business, family and investments, to mark International Women’s Day 2017.

World-famous singer Joss Stone re-recorded her song ‘Free Me’ especially for the film, and invited us to her private studio to share her opinion on equal rights for women and gender equality.

The story behind Nobel Perspectives

To give good investment advice, you need to have in-depth knowledge of the markets. For many firms, that’s enough. We’ve gone further. In our Nobel Perspectives series, we’ve interviewed dozens of Nobel Laureates in economic sciences to discover how the ideas they’ve honed through a lifetime of study can help make sense of the world around us.

It first started back in 1985 when German broadcaster, Frank Elstner, and his friend, Dr. Heinrich Walter, aimed to meet as many Nobel Laureates as possible. Now, 30 years later, we’re continuing the good work.
