Talking about philanthropy

Published on
Women will control more than 70% of the money passed down over the next two generations and they frequently welcome conversations about “doing something good” with a portion of their wealth.

In the past Wealth Advisers were often reluctant to talk about philanthropy for fear of offending a client who was not interested in a conversation about sharing their wealth.

But clients’ needs are changing so a new kind of wealth management is emerging. Women will control more than 70% of the money passed down over the next two generations and they frequently welcome conversations about “doing something good” with a portion of their wealth.

Tax efficient planning is also leading to intergenerational wealth transfers and millennials (those born between c.1980-2000) rate proactive philanthropy much more highly than their parents and grandparents.

All this means that people like you can build stronger client relationships (and have a massive impact on charitable causes) if you’re equipped to stimulate conversations about philanthropy.
