As independent wealth managers, our core role is to be good stewards of our clients’ assets. Part of that stewardship includes leading ourselves, our teams, our clients and their families in our journey of giving to those in need.
Take a look at Fig. 1 below, ‘The Global Wealth Pyramid 2020’.
It’s mind-boggling that 45.8% of global wealth is concentrated in the hands of 1.1% of the world’s individuals, while 55% of the world’s population only has access to 1.3% of the planet’s wealth! We, as wealth managers in Singapore, lead in the management of wealth of the Pinnacle of the Pyramid.
The AIWM is privileged to support Gracehaven fostering, the Salvation Army in its efforts to support over 1200 children in care in Singapore. We are also mindful, that the pandemic had directly caused an increase in children who are in need of a safe and loving home. Join us I share my family’s journey in fostering and Eugene from the Salvation Army shares, how we can get fit while raising funds and awareness for the children in care in Singapore.
