Wharton Club Association (WCA) Executive Investment Summit & Family Office Forum 2017
LONDON/MORROCO – John Canady, CEO, National Philanthropic Trust UK (NPT-UK) today spoke about impact investing and philanthropic trends at the Wharton Club Association (WCA) Executive Investment Summit & Family Office Forum 2017 in Marrakech. The conference brings together Africa’s leading investors, principals of family offices, heads of African family-owned conglomerates, and award-winning entrepreneurs.
John Canady, CEO, NPT-UK said: "Global philanthropy is evolving and donors are now actively partnering with others to solve local problems. Collaborative giving initiatives amongst prominent families in the Middle East are on the rise and we expect to see a similar trend emerge in Africa.”
Canady continued: “Donors, especially the younger members of wealthy families, are interested in putting some of their charitable capital to work for positive social change through impact investing. In addition to generating a financial return, they want to make sure that they have a positive social return too.”
