Need designer lighting for your jet?

In this month's Atlantic, Sheelah Kolhatkar writes about the billionaire service industry. As you would expect, the article explains how difficult it is to be a billionaire and how an industry of service professionals has formed to serve the needs of the ultrarich. My favorite quote from the article comes:
"You have to be selective," says Mark Hancock, a managing director at Tiedemann Trust Company who handles finances for eight ultrarich families. "I'm not just taking any multibillionaire off the street."

I wonder if he laughs himself to sleep at night.
