Opening a dialogue with clients about their philanthropy can help transform the professional adviser-client relationship – according to our new report ‘The Art of Adaptation’.

But what are the benefits of providing philanthropy advice, for clients and advisers alike? And how should wealth management, legal and accounting firms adapt to better support clients’ philanthropic ambitions? Join this webinar to take part in what promises to be a lively discussion with our expert panel.

  • Learn which areas of philanthropy advice are most valued and where wealthy individuals feel their advisers could offer more support.
  • Hear practitioners in the field discuss the challenges, benefits and potential strategies for providing philanthropy advice.
  • Pick up ideas for adding value to your advisory services and enhancing client relationships.


Cath Tillotson of Scorpio Partnership asks a panel of expert advisers - Keziah Cunningham of Charities Aid Foundation, Alexandra Loydon of St. James's Place Wealth Management and Allan Holmes of Deloitte - to share experiences of how starting a conversation about philanthropy can take the adviser-client relationship to a deeper level.
