Charity & philanthropy

Establishing a charitable legacy for you and your family.

At a point where the accumulation of your wealth has ensured the financial security of your family you may wish to consider your lasting legacy and turn your attention to how your wealth could be used to reflect your personal values and make a difference to causes of importance to you. This could involve creating your own charity or foundation, establishing a trust to benefit several existing charities, or leaving a gift to a chosen charity in your Will. To be confident that you are providing the best possible support to your chosen causes, you should work with advisers with a thorough knowledge of charity law and the expertise to structure your charitable giving appropriately.
