Teaching Philanthropy to the next generation of Wealth Managers - 29.11.2017

Fondation de Luxembourg provided for the fifth time a two-day course to the students of the Master in Wealth Management of the Luxembourg School of Finance


Established by the Luxembourg School of Finance in 2013, this Master program aims at developing knowledge and necessary skills on key topics related to finance and wealth management, including the philanthropic sector, the importance of which is steadily growing in the Grand Duchy and in Europe.


During the course given by Fondation de Luxembourg, more than thirty students from all continents discussed the current trends and philanthropic practices, including the specifics of venture philanthropy. Topics covered included amongst other the expectations of today’s philanthropists who tend to get more and more personally involved and how to meet their demands as part of a wealth management proposition. Legal and tax aspects to take into consideration for wealth managers when advising their clients in terms of their cross-boarder philanthropy were also addressed.


Two guest lecturers completed the course:


- Mr. Hugo MAHIEU, CEO of The Mangrove Foundation 2.0 under the aegis of Fondation de Luxembourg


- Mrs. Laura FOSCHI, from ADA Microfinance
