Russell Cohen

Even clients with access to private jets are reluctant to travel, reports Farrer partner Russell Cohen. ‘They’re sitting at home and talking to their loved ones,’ he says.

But the pandemic is likely to affect another area of their lives too: taxes. With the UK government looking to balance its books after a year of unprecedented spending, Cohen predicts the burden will fall on HNWs via taxation, particularly now that austerity has become politically taboo. ‘I also think there will be a renewed appetite for transparency,’ he adds. ‘I don’t think the post-pandemic world will have much sympathy for someone who says “I want privacy” when it comes to tax.’
