Modern Philanthropy: New Ways for Organizations to Target HNWIs

With the global HNWI population rising, the philanthropic sector is poised for long-term growth. This offers significant opportunities for advisors to target HNWIs.

HNWIs do not simply want to grow wealth; they are also looking to safeguard fortunes and fulfill personal interests.

There are numerous ways in which HNWIs can create a legacy through philanthropic activities, foundation work and passing on values to their children.

Younger HNWIs are increasingly donating wealth in different ways. Impact investments, micro-financing and giving pledges are all changing the way charities, non-profits and other organizations target HNWIs.

WealthInsight’s research finds that HNWIs’ giving patterns differ significantly according to their age group, gender, location, wealth band and motivation.
