    EditorFrom the

    Luxury is attention to detail, originality, exclusivity and above all quality. Angelo Bonati

    T his month we wanted to bring you a magazine that touches upon past and present luxury whilst also embracing current issues affecting business, economy, art, culture and lifestyle. With the general election just a few weeks away, were wondering what the results will be. Looking at the present situation we know that the UK could be facing considerable political instability. Philip Whiteley looks at the upcoming election on page 14.

    May is upon us and with it comes a springtime addition to our publishing titles. Alongside H Edition Global, we have launched a new monthly magazine named H Ticino for our Swiss and Italian readers. It will be distributed across Ticino and Italy. Both publications include some magnificent interviews from leading business minds such Founder and Executive Chairman of British fine jewellery brand, Astley Clarke Bec Astley Clarke. Bec was recently awarded an MBE by Her Majesty The Queen. Read her inspirational story right here on page 23. Mr Walter Rohrbach former Director of Laurent-Perrier from 1992 till 2014 also describes his affection for the world class brand that he has spent much of his life involved in.

    Grace Kelly adorns our front cover. She was the Oscar-winning movie star who bewitched Hitchcock, captivated cinema goers and ultimately became a real life princess when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco. Despite her death over thirty years ago, the image of Grace Kelly endures, she remains a fashion icon, the ultimate icy blonde who has been described as the most beautiful actress of Hollywoods Golden Age. Yet, behind the stunning good looks and the glamorous lifestyle is the story of a hard-working woman who, when forced to give up her career on marrying, devoted her life to philanthropic causes. Turn to page 26 for the full article.

    See you in June.

    The second edition of London Stock Exchanges 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report celebrates and showcases the UKs most inspiring and dynamic scale-up businesses

    and was launched with much success at the beginning of March.

    The publication is a significant part of London Stock Exchanges broader campaign to support the UKs ambitious companies in their growth journeys and to create an entrepreneurship revolution. It is these businesses that are vital to the UKs prosperity, yet they still face significant hurdles in realising their achievements and often remain under celebrated and under recognised.

    One such hurdle London Stock Exchange feels strongly about helping these businesses overcome, is their dependence on bank and debt finance. Together with the wider business community, we are committed to educating and encouraging these businesses to look at equity financing as a viable source of long-term stable capital.

    Together with the UK Government and business community, much progress has been made in diversifying the UK funding ladder for these firms but despite this, recent statistics from the British Bankers Association continue to highlight a trend amongst many businesses towards debt financing. Only three per cent of UK SMEs using equity finance, which is in stark contrast to the US, where over 70 percent of financing comes from various types of equity: angel investment, crowd-funding, venture capital, private equity, a stock market listing.

    Aside from support through providing capital, simply celebrating and highlighting some of these businesses is also crucial in boosting their profile and helping them to further grow and develop. London Stock Exchanges 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report does exactly that. The result of positive collaboration between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies, it highlights the achievements of many of the UKs most inspiring businesses.

    The report is unique in its approach in identifying the UKs high growth businesses. It looks at private and listed companies and focuses on metrics beyond

    short term revenue and profit growth, painting a more accurate portrayal of the wider economy. Not only is revenue growth over the last four years taken into account but also how companies have performed against their sector peers. This unique methodology reveals a community of UK businesses richer and more varied than we believe ever identified in any other exercise of this type.

    Interesting trends have emerged one year further on from the financial crisis. Certainly a recovery being built on jobs: 50 recruitment firms made the list, a 100 per cent
