We promote London and the UK as a global philanthropic hub [as] the UK’s regulatory environment provides for a transparent and stable system,’ says Jon Kinnell, private clients senior manager at Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). Regardless of Brexit or the party in power, we can expect those features to remain in place. Kinnell specialises in helping clients achieve the greatest impact for their wealth in the UK and abroad. He has been responsible for amassing over £100m of philanthropic funds. He notes millennials should not fall into a specific age bracket, but more a way of thinking: it will be interesting to see how this group evolves as they move into senior roles. Mistakes are ‘not always bad… that’s one of the ways donors learn,’ he says.
