The second edition of the Wealth for Good in Hong Kong Summit concluded today with the launch of "Impact Link", a philanthropic initiative helping family offices and asset owners to make informed decisions on charity projects.

Announcing the Impact Link’s launch during the event's gala dinner, Financial Secretary Paul Chan said it is a charity project depository under the Academy for Wealth Legacy that will connect donors and charity projects with an initial emphasis on healthcare, early biotech research, poverty alleviation and youth empowerment.

“It will serve as a comprehensive project database, displaying charity projects in need of financial support.

“By enabling meaningful connections between these projects and potential donors, we hope to expand transformative philanthropic ventures. And, in doing so, reinforce our role as a global philanthropic hub for family offices.”

Family offices and asset owners can make more informed decisions with the Impact Link's charity projects information and stakeholder connections to ensure their contributions will create maximum impact, Mr Chan added.

With the theme "Growing with certainty amid growing uncertainty", the summit this year drew over 400 influential decision makers from global family offices and their professional teams spanning Hong Kong, the Mainland, Asia, Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and beyond.
