A New Social Contract: Between wealth and resilience

HSBC Private Banking is pleased to introduce a special series on A New Social Contract. Researched and written by The Economist Intelligence Unit, these two reports explore two important means by which private investors can contribute actively to a sustainable post-pandemic recovery: impact investing and philanthropy.

Crisis philanthropy: Forging a new social contract

While many have engaged actively in charitable giving, to what extent are they focusing on reducing fractures in society, as opposed to isolated projects and initiatives? This report, written by The Economist Intelligence Unit and drawing from experts across three continents, looks at how the current pandemic provides an opportunity to create a new social contract between philanthropists and civil society stakeholders.
