FSDC Industry Exchange Series Wealth for Good: Hong Kong as a Regional Philanthropic Hub

The FSDC cordially invites you to our upcoming webinar exploring Hong Kong’s role as a Regional Philanthropic Hub. Join us via Zoom on 6 February for a deep dive into the captivating world of philanthropy in one of Asia’s most vibrant cities! 

Hong Kong’s cultural diversity, robust financial sector, and rich history of giving have positioned it as a philanthropic powerhouse in the region. The city is home to some of the world’s most prominent philanthropists and charity donors, including one of the world’s largest. The contributions from ultra-high-net-worth individuals in Hong Kong have shaped the city’s development in multiple ways, and the philanthropic sphere has witnessed a growing involvement from wealthy families and their family offices, with more families acknowledging the significance of contributing to society and creating a positive influence.

As family offices embrace philanthropy, it is essential to reinforce the ecosystem that supports these endeavours to establish Hong Kong as a global family office hub. Thus, the FSDC conducted a study to identify the common challenges facing the current sector and to examine the city’s strengths as a philanthropic hub. The report also puts forward key recommendation for building a holistic ecosystem conducive to the development of philanthropic giving in Hong Kong.

 Join us at our Industry Exchange Series webinar to gain deeper insights into the paper. Our distinguished speakers will discuss the global philanthropic landscape and measures to enhance Hong Kong’s stature as a philanthropic hub and, ultimately, strengthen the city’s position as a global hub for family offices.
