BNP Paribas Wealth Management today publishes the second edition of its Individual Philanthropy Index, which measures and reflects the commitment of philanthropists in four regions – Europe, Asia, the Middle East and for the first time, the United States. Scores are based on three main criteria: the amounts donated, innovation, and the effort invested by the philanthropists to promote their chosen causes.
The Index is derived from a survey of over 400 High Net Worth Individuals in the four regions, each with investable assets valued at $5 million or more. The survey was carried out by Forbes Insights between October and December 2013.
The BNP Paribas Individual Philanthropy Index is accompanied by a report from Forbes Insights setting out the background to the survey and detailing the analysis performed. It is further illustrated by personal stories of some of the world’s best-known philanthropic givers. This year’s publication explores the importance of timing to the philanthropic journey.
