Training Course for Advisers

Providing Philanthropy and Social Investment Advice


“Humans are neither binary or rational; informed only by risk and return and at all times logical. Passions play a huge part in how we behave. Wealth and investment is also changing – we are entering a new paradigm where it is seen as a powerful tool to affect sustained and positive social change. Advisors need to embrace this and evolve to stay with the market and their clients”
AMY CLARKE, Co-Founder, Tribe Impact Capital LLP


Changing Times

(U)HNWs’ private clients’ needs are changing. Research shows that they want more comprehensive and personalised support from their professional advisors (wealth management, tax, legal, independant financial advisers, family trusts, family offices, professional philanthropy advisers) to address their values-based economic and social goals.  
Driven by millennials and women with wealth, the growing demand for philanthropy and social impact investment advice and support provides increased opportunities for professional advisory firms - learn with us to be ahead of this curve.
