Wendy Coumantaros

Senior Consultant

As well as a Senior Consultant to EH Global Capital, Wendy is an experienced international mediator and negotiator, whose responsibilities revolve, as Co-Founder and Consultant Publisher, around the branding, editorial opportunities and sponsorship of the Spear’s 500 Directory and its related events.

Fourteen years ago, with William Cash, she co-founded Spear’s, the bi-monthly magazine for UHNW Individuals and those in the financial service industries, Hedge Funds and Private Client Law Firms. It has been called “the Bible of the banking fraternity” by GQ and “a European rival to Forbes” by the Evening Standard and it is read by 35,000 of Europe’s decision-makers and wealth-creators. She is now Commercial Director of the Spear’s 500 Directory, the world’s first comprehensive guide to the top private client advisers, wealth managers and HNW service providers. The Spear’s 500 has been acclaimed as a ‘must have’ Debrett’s Guide by Single Family Offices and UHNW Entrepreneurs.

Prior to Spear’s, Wendy served as Director of Strategic Growth and Client Development for Brecher Connect, where she spearheaded the separate LLP private equity platform of the Brecher law firm and focused on real estate introductions both in the UK and abroad.

As a testimony to her multifaceted range of interests, Wendy also has experience in hedge funds, having served as Business Development Director in 2003 for the KGR Capital Absolute Return Fund (Asia Pacific), as well as in conflict resolution, after seven years of service as Communications Consultant at the Conflict Resolution Research Resource Institute in Seattle.

She has been described as a “rare diamond” for her excellent client-facing skills, and for her finesse in hosting exclusive, tailor-made receptions and dinners, both large and small.
