Over the past decades, Asian countries have benefited from an impressive economic growth. Asia leads the world in the number of new “high net worth individuals” (HNWIs), while a growing middle class now enjoys consumerism. Meanwhile, entrenched poverty, income inequalities and large-scale environmental issues have become major concerns, especially in demographic giants such as India and China. Building on this “new wealth” linked to business successes, philanthropy is a vibrant phenomenon among Asian nations. As recent studies by UBS-INSEAD and Bain & Company show, a new generation of young philanthropists emerges at the crossroads of the business and community structures. How do these new trends complement more traditional approaches ? How do generations differ in their philanthropic enterprises ? What causes and practices are prioritized ? What are the main challenges for Asian philanthropy and what can we learn from it ?
