About Owl Private Office

Owl launched in March 2017 is an overarching advisory consultancy serving very wealthy families and endowments.  With their many years’ experience in the multi-family office and wealth management industry, its founders, Adam Wethered, William Drake and Andrew Wimble have established Owl to answer the need for a conflict-free advisory service assisting with formulation of objectives, strategies and structures that need to be defined and effected before specialist professional advisers and asset managers are appointed. With their career backgrounds in law, banking, corporate finance, trusteeship and investment management, Owl’s founders have extensive experience of managing the wealth of substantial international families, trusts as well as Oxbridge colleges over many years.

Owl helps wealthy families, trustees and individuals think through their long-term objectives, sitting on the same side of the table, guiding and representing their interests with external professional advisers. Amongst other things, this can involve helping clients assemble and coordinate a team of advisers, set up a dedicated single family office or simply helping clients source, appoint and hold to account the right professional advisers and investment managers to suit their needs. Owl offers an overall ‘review of existing arrangements’ service, with a sharp eye on quality and costs on the client’s behalf, and recommends the way forward.

Owl does not base its charges on the value of its clients’ wealth or size of funds under management. Rather a flat pre-agreed fee is charged by Owl for advice.  Unaffiliated with any product provider or asset manager, Owl will see to it that the best possible terms are negotiated with external professional advisers and insist on client assets held with third parties are held in safe custody with strongly financed counterparties.
