“Thank you to everybody who participated in the research for our 2018 edition. This edition will be the fifth anniversary of this unique report, which will continue to shine a light on the philanthropic and impact investment activities of Individuals, Families, Family Offices and Foundations around the world.”

Our research highlights the progression of the philanthropy and impact space whilst connecting and engaging like-minded “impact entrepreneurs” to “impact investors” and the social impact community around the globe.

With a four-year data set accrued, our 2017 report began to identify key trends in the behaviour of wealthy families, who have a pivotal role to play in furthering impact investing. We are excited to launch the 2018 anniversary report and continue this story.
