Sally Tennant OBE: Working with wealthy families in Saudi Arabia

Sally Tennant OBE: Working with wealthy families in Saudi Arabia

We had the pleasure of chatting with Sally Tennant OBE, the founder of Acorn Capital Advisers.

Sally shares her experience of working with clients in Saudi Arabia and explains how her firm plans to preserve & enhance their wealth. We also discuss her vision for working with strong female clients who want customised wealth management services. Furthermore, we dive into London's current standing as a hub for investment and independent investment advice. Sally provides valuable insights on collaborating with professionals like trustees and lawyers to ensure effective governance and investment strategies.

We dive into her experience working with Saudi family offices and how she builds trust through face-to-face interactions. She shares insights on the value of independent investments, especially in private equity, and how philanthropy and legacy play a role in investment decisions. We also discuss trends she's noticed in the GCC region and how impact is becoming more important in investing. 

Join us as we learn from one of the best in the business!
