Who Is Quartet?

Who is Quartet?

As the name suggests, we are a team of four individuals, each with our own area of professional expertise within the luxury asset markets and teamed together having worked on various joint transactions over several years.

Located in the UK and Palma de Mallorca, Quartet FO was formed after many of our individual clients were growing frustrated at the transparency of the process chain and structure of certain transactions.

By combining our knowledge and talents of various markets into a more efficient value proposition, we are able to offer a unique, simplified and, above all, a completely honest approach within the Family Office world.

We work closely with our clients as their trusted advisors and consultants in the sourcing and validity of valuable investment assets. Through working with us you are assured of having a reliable business partner who is experienced in the sourcing, transacting and delivery of a wide variety of assets including fine art, blue chip classic cars and supercars, prestigious property, yachts and rare collectables.

We recognise the urgency and confidentiality of buying desirable objects which is why our new clients are often referred to us by our existing client base. They like clarity, crystal clarity.

Who are Quartet?

Edward Hathaway

BA (Hons) Mallorca, Spain

Edward is a founding member of the Quartet Family Office and heads up the Palma de Mallorca office.
Prior to moving to the sunnier climates of the Balearic Islands, Edward started his journey in the business world in Manchester. He was a key member of the marketing team at EMAP Media (now Bauer Media Group) before being headhunted by Lycos to help set up their northern office as they entered the online frenzy. He was then asked to join Walsh Simmons where he was an integral part of the team behind the famous Laterooms.com website, proving to be the benchmark in the online hotel booking sector.
Edward then went solo and entered the world of hospitality, owning numerous venues in the north west of the UK. He also set up The Buzzing Butler which was maybe 20 years too soon to rival Deliveroo and Just Eat. Not long after the birth of his son, his family decided to move to Palma where Edward put his working ethos into his passion for yachts, art and blue chip vehicles. He established a couple of companies which supply the yachting industry with a variety of services, one of which is possibly the world's largest selection of land and sea toys for sale and rent dedicated to the yachting sector.
His passion for cherished vehicles and art falls suitably into his network of clients who, as you can imagine, are also huge collectors of luxury assets.
