Digital technology, AI, and associated disruptive activities are having a positive impact for society.  However there are potential disruptions that could lead to increased income disparity and associated social problems.
This event will address how social investors, philanthropists and professional advisers to (U)HNWI can address issues related to constant change.  How will they cope with and proactively create, lead and inspire the creation of a society that ‘we want our children and grandchildren to inherit’.
Is the answer in the phrase ‘tech for good’?  Martin Leuw, a digital and social entrepreneur, feels that it is in ‘everybody’s interest to replace “Greed for Good” with “Growth for Good”.  What is the connection between tech and growth for good?  Where and how does organisational and individual digital agility fit?
How can philanthropists meet these significant challenges? To some cheque writing and donations appear not to be solving the problem of poverty and the growing income distance between the wealthy and those with considerably less resources.  Is one of the solutions social enterprise?  Or hybrid for profit businesses with social ends as a key component of the business – responding to the needs of customers, shareholders, and the community?
Why should professional advisers pay attention to these issues?  Research by Philanthropy Impact and others clearly provides evidence that advisers’ clients wish to have more support for their philanthropic and social investment journeys from their advisers.

Chair: George King IV, Partner, MASECO Private Wealth

Panel: Martin Leuw, Founder, Growth4Good; Kim Morrish, Founder, Canterbury Partners; Richard BrassHead of Wealth and Asset Management UK, Berenberg.
