A new luxury asset business, the Spencer Buley Group, launched in the UK this week to offer its high net worth individual client base a service package in which total privacy is a key element. This new enterprise comprises a large group of partnerships so that a full bespoke offering can be provided to its clients.

Ashley Hurrell, the founder of the new group, explained to IBI that it has taken about a year to implement the new venture. He comments: “Our clients are high net worth individuals who fall into the top 1% of the wealthy. This new group has been formed because they were telling us that they want a higher level of privacy that they receive from other providers.”

He points out that Spencer Buley’s clients are interested in the full spread of luxury asset, including superyachts, aircraft, property and so on. “We will deal with the superyachts that do not appear in the published lists,” he adds. “The average size of yacht our clients are interested in is 90m-100m (296ft-328ft).”

In a press statement, Hurrell suggests that the Spencer Buley brand “brings a fresh approach to the world of yachting and luxury services. Registered clients have access to a members’ only area through the Spencer Buley website, that offers exclusive opportunities with complete discretion. From yacht concepts to superyachts, private jets, islands and estates.”

Spencer Buley Group was formed last year by Hurrell and Greg Voice, a former yacht captain and owner of Salt Superyacht Management Ltd. Salt is a partner which offers a wide range of yacht-related services including brokerage of pre-owned and new-builds, management and charter.
