Also released in the last couple of days was Merrill Lynch & Capgemini’s World Wealth Report, which had some interesting things to report on philanthropy: according to the AFR‘s article on the report, “The wealth of the world’s super-rich soared last year at the fastest rate for seven years. But the rise in riches was accompanied by a surge in charitable giving AUD $340 billion – believed to be a record”. You can read the World Wealth Report here.
