SINGAPORE, March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wealth-X, the global UHNW prospecting, intelligence and wealth due diligence firm, was invited to speak at the recent CASE Asia-Pacific Advancement Conference 2012, 14-16 March, in Hong Kong. The conference organizer, Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), is one of the world's largest non-profit educational associations in terms of institutional membership.
As an invited speaker at the event, Chief Executive Officer of Wealth-X, Mykolas D. Rambus, gave conference participants a refreshing perspective on Asian philanthropy and the implications it has for education professionals and institutions. "With an estimated total of 43,000 UHNW individuals worth US$6.2 trillion, Asian philanthropy presents a vast trove of unexplored opportunities," he said. Expanding on the topic, Mr Rambus noted, "The lack of a clear trend in Asia in terms of major giving means there is an unprecedented opportunity for not-for-profit organizations, such as educational institutions, to motivate and shape the future of major giving in Asia."
Addressing specific concerns of the audience, Mr Rambus explained, "For organizations to effectively tap the resources of Asian philanthropy, they must acquire information regarding potential UHNW targets, effectively expand their social map and target the right individuals or groups. Wealth-X is the ideal portal that provides your organization the necessary information to set up and execute this process efficiently."
In line with the aim of helping organizations further refine profiling systems and effectively target UHNW targets, Mr Rambus launched Wealth-X's eighth office in Hong Kong. Reflecting on the significance of Wealth-X's new Greater China office, Mr Rambus commented, "Although many are aware of the spectacular growth of wealth in the Asian region, few have been able to effectively capitalize on it."At briefing sessions marking the launch of the office, Mr Rambus said, "Wealth-X's Greater China office aims to extend the benefits existing members enjoy to more players in the financial, luxury and not-for-profits industries. By refining their profiling systems and targeting the right segments of UHNW in Greater China, players can avail themselves of opportunities to capitalize on the immense potential of the region."
