The clients were a couple, both in their 60s, who were British nationals and resident in the UK. The couple’s estate is valued at £10 million.

The client is in his 40s, resident in the UK, but not considered to be domiciled in the UK. His family lives in Kuwait.

For this reason, he was referred to a US-based broker with whom we have worked closely on many occasions.
