STANDARD.CO.UK - Sep 4 - A family-run matchmaking agency based in Mayfair, Gray & Farrar has clients in Brussels, Geneva, Paris, Monaco, New York and Dubai. Their business has quadrupled over the past three years. It now has ~1,750 members, split evenly between the sexes. The clients are “educated, cosmopolitan and accomplished people who meet people all the time but lack access to the right ones, who are genuinely committed to a long-term relationship”. Operating in a similar sphere is Seventy Thirty, whose offices are in Knightsbridge. Seventy Thirty’s membership fees start at £9,5K but climb to £50K. Seventy Thirty has a team of psychologists and relationship experts who matchmake members.
