Hawksford's Global Head of Private Client Services, Darren Kelland, features in a Bloomberg Family Office special report discussing 'Eco-guilt' and how younger generations of UHNW are focused on their family's contribution to climate change.
Darren Kelland has been featured in a recent Bloomberg special report which discusses the impact of private jet ownership on climate change.
In this extract from the report, Darren discusses 'Eco-guilt' and how younger generations of UHNW are focused on their family's contribution to climate change:

He recalls that one client’s daughter wouldn’t let her father purchase a private jet without a plan to offset its emissions.
