London Super-Prime

London’s prime property market continues to perform strongly. In its 2015 Wealth Report, Knight Frank found that global Ultra High Net Worth Individuals (UHNWIs) continued to rank London as the number 1 global city. The Report also found that London remains the city with the highest number of UHNWIs, followed by Tokyo, Singapore and New York. The Wealth Report forecasts London to retain this global top spot throughout the next decade. Out of all cities globally, London has been the top recipient of High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs) attracting more than double the number 2 city and attracting the wealthy from Europe, China, Russia, India, the Middle East and Africa.

The super-prime end of the market has always been the leader in quality materials and craftsmanship as well as the test-bed for new technologies. Typically, leading architects, designers, artists and artisans from around the world provide personalised, impactful work. Saigol DDC for example displays art from artists including Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Francis Bacon. Saigol DDC uses craftsmen who have been award-winners and who have worked at Buckingham Palace, The Royal Opera House and The Houses of Parliament.
