Groundbreaking US study to explore whether money can really buy happiness
The first large-scale survey to focus exclusively on the ‘ultra-wealthy’ is being backed by the Gates Foundation.
The objectives of the study, The Joys and Dilemmas of Wealth, to be carried out by the Boston College Center on Wealth and Philanthropy, is to uncover the attitudes, practices and personal philosophies of ultra high-net-worth households in the US regarding wealth and philanthropy.
Households with at least $25m in net worth, with a considerable portion of those respondents above $100m, will be approached in the survey, partly funded by grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Calibre, a division of Wachovia Wealth Management in the US.
