La Playa's Little Black Book

La Playa's Little Black Book

At La Playa we're really proud of our commitment to be different, to work intelligently with you, to listen, respond and 'make it happen'. We take great satisfaction in making your life easier through our connections. If you need access to a valuer, repairer, solicitor, or surveyor, for example, we can point you in the right direction.

To demonstrate this we've developed relationships in a range of different services. Many of these connections were born out of necessity, some were cultivated specifically for this purpose - but it's all to make your experience at La Playa a richer one.

Let us know the area that interests you and we will be delighted to make a personal introduction, to an individual or company who will be useful.

About La Playa Private Client

Specialist & Independent

Specialist & Independent

La Playa Private Client creates a safe space for you to live life to the full, enjoying your family, friends, and assets wherever you are in the world - without worry or hassle.

We can make sense of all your insurance needs - property, yachts and superyachts, high-performance and classic cars, private jets, art, wine and jewellery collections – and your liabilities too. We can pull multiple assets together on a single “portfolio” policy – or if you prefer, take care of each item separately. 

Amid the impersonal and automated world of large insurance corporations, La Playa provides a refreshingly boutique-style service, with individual advice, and cover based on in-depth understanding of your specific situation. After a detailed and confidential review of your needs and priorities, we’ll structure your insurance arrangements so you know you and your family are protected, come what may.  

In-house Wealth Management

We also offer Investments & Pensions and Financial Planning: a joined up approach with a team of advisers working for your best financial interests - all under one roof.
