Wealthy Increasingly Focused On Social Impact
This post was originally produced for Forbes.
Fully 92 percent of high net worth individuals think driving global impact is important, according to a survey conducted for Capgemini and RBC Wealth Management.
Other observations from the report include:
75 percent of high net worth individuals or HNWIs 40 and younger believe that social impact is “very” or “extremely” important
HNWIs in emerging markets like China, India and Indonesia were more likely to rate having social impact as “very” or “extremely” important
The survey also identified the top five ways that HNWIs give back:
Making investment choices with a clearly defined social impact objective
Giving on an ongoing basis to charities
More general community involvement
Volunteering knowledge and expertise
Making strategic business decisions with a clearly defined social impact objective
The survey results show that the top three reasons HNWIs seek to give back are their personal and family values, their desire to pass their values along to their children and their sense of responsibility to give back.
