“Giving back is an integral part of what we do, reaching out and adding value to the communities we work with in more ways than one…”
At Twin Pine, we are passionate about contributing to the betterment of society, and giving back to the communities in which we work. Our people want to make a difference and to help make the world a better place, through a number of CSR projects designed to support those most in need. Our commitment to society makes Twin Pine stand out in the boutique investment banking community.
We have given considerable thought to where we can help, where we can make a difference, and have chosen to focus on two of the most important social issues in this part of the world – education and livelihood.
We believe that education is vital for the development of the human race and can build the stepping stones to social and economic viability across the globe. Even now though, a lack of opportunity together with unequal standards of education remains a major problem, particularly in developing and third world countries, and at Twin Pine we want to contribute towards the building blocks of education and to enhance life experiences for the children.
We help to provide opportunities by directing our donations and endeavors towards school supplies, promoting reading and encouraging extracurricular activities in order to help create better educational experiences.
Twin Pine values the importance of a sustainable livelihood for all that is integral to the well-being of future generations. We aim to inspire hopes, dreams, a fighting spirit and a better quality of life through initiatives that will create a positive environment for children and communities.
Our support covers areas that range from the promotion of good health and well-being to participation in sports programs.
