Insight Report: Philanthropy

Reportstack has announced a new market research publication on Insight Report: Philanthropy. The report provides market analysis and insights, including:
• In-depth analysis of the philanthropic sector and the opportunities and challenges it holds for wealth management firms
• Detailed analysis of key causes that attract the attention of HNWIs for philanthropic contributions
• Detailed analysis of key and emerging trends in the philanthropic sector
• Insights into the philanthropic giving patterns of HNWIs across regions
• Case studies of private banks and wealth managers that are successfully challenging the sector’s dynamics


Global philanthropic activity demonstrated steady growth during the review period, and HNWIs have played a significant role in achieving this. However, the global trend of giving among HNWIs varies by region and country, depending on demographics, culture and traditions. Accordingly, each region has its own drivers and challenges. While a decline is being observed in spontaneous HNWI contributions in the philanthropy sector, structured philanthropic contributions are growing. Rather than contributing to qualify for tax deductions, the focus of HNWIs has increasingly been concentrated around the impact of their philanthropic investments. Many HNWIs are willing to become actively involved in their cause by volunteering. The philanthropy sector is demonstrating an increasing focus on impact and innovation.


• This report provides an in-depth analysis of the philanthropic sector and the opportunities it holds for wealth management firms. It includes case studies of private banks and wealth managers that are successfully challenging the sector’s dynamics.
• The report focuses on the philanthropic trends of HNWIs worldwide, and provides analysis from proprietary HNWI database comprising over 75,000 individuals. For the purpose of identifying regional trends, HNWI philanthropists have been segmented by the geographical region. 
• The report examines the specific trends in the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. For each region, the motives of HNWI philanthropists are analyzed by age, gender, the industry they belong to, and their wealth band.
