As many of you will know, last week the National Lottery made 40 people in the UK instant millionaires, which is quite a big deal. And this week, the lucky winner of the biggest Mega Millions jackpot ever came forward to pick up their $1 billion prize, so we decided to launch a service that helps these new millionaires in the aftermath of winning the lottery – and if you think you know how the rich should spend their money, then we’ve got the perfect job for you.
We’ve launched a ‘Millionaire Concierge’ service, which will give newly-made millionaires guidance on how to look after their money and themselves after such a huge lifestyle change.
Whether this be through inheritance, sudden fame, or winning the lottery, our concierges will be on hand to give expert advice on what you should do. Prices for the service will be around $1,300 (£1,000) per consultation, which normally last around two hours.
The job of the concierge will be to ‘hand-hold’ newly made millionaires through the initial scramble when someone comes into extensive riches. Each concierge will need to be on-call to help millionaires with whatever may arise after they gain access to their new-found wealth.
This could range from advising on money matters to how much to spend on a house or car. They will also offer support when dealing with freeloaders and gold diggers, and give general guidance on how to adjust to such a big lifestyle change.
On top of this, for each of the 40 Brits who become millionaires on Friday 1st March and the South Carolina resident who scooped the jackpot, we’re offering the service for free – in order to give all of them the best chance of making the most of their money.
Too often we’ve seen people who come into extreme wealth waste it, and sometimes even find themselves in a worse position than they were before they earnt their money. We’re hoping that with our service launch this won’t happen again.
When we saw the news about 40 new overnight-millionaires in the UK and the billion dollar winner in the US, we knew that we needed to do something to help them, as they will inevitably face numerous challenges when they get their hands on their money. Often, coming into wealth will mean that people you know, and some you don’t will come knocking. The job of our concierges is simply to make sure that newly-made millionaires from across the globe, make the right decisions.
We’re also on the lookout for more concierges. If you have a background in financial advice and / or luxury personal shopping, we could be looking for you! You’ll need to go through a rigorous selection process, and undertake training that will teach you how to be a Millionaire Concierge.
