Launched in response to a growing demand from its prestigious clientele, the banking institution has created a specialist course to help prospective philanthropists with the skills they need.

Following the first session on 24th October at the Méridient Hotel, the course will go on to cover topics such: evaluation criteria, vision, opportunities, resources and partners. As a representative from CMB describes it: ‘All the ingredients necessary for the success of [a] project’.

The bank’s team of lecturers is supported by external speakers including Vice President and CEO of the Prince Albert II Fondation Bernard Fautrier, who led the inaugural session, and easyJet’s Stelios Haji-Ioannou.

According to the bank: “This new Academy allows CMB to contribute to the education of a public aware of the values of philanthropy and offer it a new investment axis for its patrimonial strategy.”

CEO of CMB Werner Peyer says, “Philanthropy means being committed to working for the well-being of humanity. An institution like ours has a duty to get involved in the future of the next generations.”
