22nd January 2016 Paul Andrews

Trusted Family appoints Wolfgang Hafenmayer as Head of Impact Advisory.

Trusted Family, market leader in powering cohesion for successful families, has announced the appointment of Mr. Wolfgang Hafenmayer as the Head of its Impact Advisory practice.

In this capacity Mr. Hafenmayer will oversee the company’s expansion of its Societal Impact solutions for business owning families. He assumes the position from immediate effect.

Mr. Hafenmayer comes with more than a decade of experience, bringing impact investing, ‘inclusive business’ and philanthropy to High Net Worth families. In his previous role as Managing Partner with LGT Venture Philanthropy, he enjoyed the support of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein and built the bank’s subsidiary from scratch into a recognized leader in impact investing. He helped to set the societal impact agenda of dozens of families around the world.

Prior to LGT, he managed the investments of a family backed social venture fund, and has contributed to launching a sustainable asset management company.

Wolfgang Hafenmayer is also a sought-after speaker in his domain of expertise. For his book "The Future Makers", he interviewed 230 social entrepreneurs, politicians and scientists in 26 countries.

The arrival of Mr. Hafemayer is the latest in a series of senior hires for Trusted Family. It confirms earlier statements about its strategic repositioning, and continued growth of its business proposition.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr. Hafenmayer, said: “I’m thrilled to join Trusted Family as its strategic push to make Societal Impact part of its clients’ agendas neatly fits with what I have seen working in practice. My choice to join them is a logical step forward as we observe the Social Impact space moving beyond the question of the why, into the how. The prospect of addressing that question together with powerful families who have already understood that their own future is at least in part linked to that of society at large, is exciting to say the least."

"I cannot think of a better environment to deliver on this vision than Trusted Family, with its ongoing client relationships and proven tech-enabled solutions.“

“We are tremendously fortunate to be able to attract such a purpose-driven, seasoned and delivery-focused executive,” says Trusted Family’s CEO, Joachim Vandaele.

“As a business and thought leader Wolfgang embodies the innovation we want to bring to a sector which is steeped in tradition. His deep experience in positioning Societal Impact as a catalyst for sustainable growth adds perfectly to our quest of demonstrating that the true source of a family’s wealth creation is not only about financial and succession planning, but about fostering and actively managing the family’s intangible capital.”
