At the 2015 annual conference of the International Bar Association (IBA), VALUEworks head of philanthropy services Caroline Piraud joined the international panel, “Cross-border philanthropy and cross-border investments by, and activities of, philanthropic institutions.” Based on insights from her extensive client work, Caroline highlighted that tax considerations, while important, are not the key drivers of global giving. The panel was composed of legal experts from various countries, including Brazil, Japan, the Netherlands, South Africa, Switzerland and the UK. Nearly 6000 delegates from over 135 countries attended this year’s IBA conference which was held from October 4-9, 2015 in Vienna.
