The greatest joy in having money is the ability it gives you to spend it wherever you want, be it Maseratis, homes on the south coast of France, luxury yachts, super duper weddings, and art.
But those who don’t know turn their heads to Spear magazine.
Spear publishes a directory of 500 advisers, consultants, managers and agents for Ultra High Net Worth Individuals (aka billionaires). The entries can be eclectic enough to stretch your credulity of money.
Take a look at what all finds its mention in the Little Black Book of Billionaires:
Counsellor to help kids cope up with money
Mark Boyden, a psychotherapist and executive coach, renders his services to the rich brats of the uber rich who do not know what to do with all that money. Apart from that, he also helps the billionaires in ‘family offices’ and in stress, anxiety, depression etc.
Bookie for billionaires
Money is needed for gambling. And when you are rich, you get exclusive bookies. Fitzdares, a bookie company run by Fabricius and backed by Goldsmiths, is an exclusive bookie company in London. Behind the glitzy walls, punters- who are proposed and seconded for a membership- gamble millions of pounds on all events.
The status symbol of all that is rich, superyachts, take in three to five million pounds to stay afloat. And like all other businesses, superyacht also needs a team. Jonathan Beckett is the man who does everything – yacht management, hiring the crew, restoration and maintenance etc to ensure that the boat sails.
Nuclear bunker broker
To prepare for the apocalypse, Edward and Dianna Peden come to the rescue. The couple are nuclear bunker brokers who provide the ultra rich with luxurious bunkers to hide into during nuclear war. One such example is the missile site in Kansas which has been converted into a luxurious underground home and can be brought for a tiny fraction of $3.2 million.
Dirk Seyfriend is the authorised Master of Havana cigars. One can seldom find someone more expert at telling the rich how to burn their money with cigars than him.
Building health is now as important as building an empire. And Ellidore Lifestyles has that perfect job. From preparing an entire routine of yoga, workouts, gymming, detoxes to sending a car to pick and drop from the doorstep, Simon Blackford ensures that the plutocrats stay in perfect shape.
Hunting in corporates is so 2016. The rich now hunt for exotic animals like Ibex, Musk Ox, Elk, wild boars etc. Outdoors International ensure that the rich remain entertained and a winner at everything expedition.
What is the use of all that money if you can’t get out of the limousine and board a private jet? Bruno Perdiel of Jetbox is the most favourite aviation dealer who can buy the best of the aircraft for the rich and can also book a chartered plane at a moment’s notice.
Adam Toop is a handyman. Whenever the rich break or lose their phones, at the press of the button, Adam’s Phones can come to their rescue.
Who said money can’t buy you all the comfort?
