Carrying the Torch: Passing on a lasting family legacy to future generations through family philanthropy

Published Date: 20 May 2022

Family philanthropy has long been perceived as a cornerstone of preserving family legacy, creating a continuation of family spirit and enhancing family engagement and identity. Deloitte collaborates with UBS to launch this paper Carrying the Torch - Passing on a lasting family legacy to future generations through family philanthropy, which focuses on the family philanthropy practices in the Asia Pacific region, and explores how these wealthy families, especially the younger generations, are leading their family foundations to create a lasting social impact while helping to preserve family legacy. This paper is a part of the family office report series launched by Deloitte and UBS, which explores the trends and outlook of family offices, with topics ranging from family succession, family governance, and the roles of next generation to sustainable investing.

Over the past few decades, Asia has amassed one-third of the world's wealth while witnessing incredible progress in areas such as education, life expectancy and infrastructure. Yet, the region remains home to two-thirds of the world's poor. Pressing global challenges such as the pandemic, natural disaster, and economic and social inequalities remain, together with the accumulation of private wealth, persistent economic inequalities, and a heightened awareness of social impact have all contributed to the rapid growth of charitable giving in the region.

Given the shifting landscape of global wealth, the role of the next generation continues to expand as they help this space evolve beyond traditional practices to create more lasting impact on their philanthropic efforts, while carrying on their family values, vision and sense of responsibility in giving back to society.

We have summarized a few key takeaways from the white paper for your reference and considerations. For more information, please refer to the white paper.

For centuries, succession and next generation development has always been at the top of the agenda for family enterprises. Both family businesses and the next generation of successors are constantly looking for ways to transform in order to find their place in a rapidly evolving world. In a world of relatively low fixed income yields, many family offices are looking at growth assets with attractive returns, including private market investments. Some family offices across the Asia Pacific have already initiated their journeys in private equity investments to embrace vigorous growth opportunities at home, while building up credentials and discovering their roles in their family business along the way.
