Motivated by impact: A new generation seek to make their mark

The next generation of business leaders are taking over the reins of established family businesses and are looking to make their mark. Others are charting their own course, setting up innovative businesses to meet the evolving needs of a global consumer base. Young people are also blurring the lines between investment and philanthropy, seeking investment opportunities that will have a positive social impact on communities around the world, while also making a profit.
