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.
