Family Background 

The principal is a businessman with a fast-paced schedule. He visits London regularly (usually twice a month), and generally visits with his adult son. The principal has a family of six, with all grown up children. The 350sqm penthouse apartment in Mayfair is a second residence for the principal. It has four stunning bedrooms and five bathrooms.
