James Weaver

Spear’s Review

As a managing director of private wealth management, Goldman Sachs’ James Weaver is responsible for finding, advising, managing and looking after the wealth of clients ‘through all the complexities that life brings’.

The majority of his clients are self-made, and relationships are personal; discussions can range from the benefits of trusts to the joys of fishing. ‘Our clients and business are both long term,’ he says. ‘The key is to have that long-term mentality and thus grow both the client base and the adviser teams for the benefit of the next generation. 

‘I always say that we are not running the clients’ money, we are running their children’s. If we do a good job, they will in time introduce us, and that will be the key endorsement.’
