Boston Private Partners with The University of Chicago Booth School of Business to Educate Next Generation about Wealth Stewardship
BOSTON – February 23, 2021 – Boston Private Financial Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BPFH) (“Boston Private”), a leading provider of integrated wealth management, trust and banking services, has announced the launch of its Mentorship and Preparedness Program (MAPP), created in partnership with the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. The executive education program, offered exclusively to the children and grandchildren of Boston Private clients, is an educational experience designed to provide young adults with the knowledge and skills necessary to be financially independent and prepared to inherit wealth.
“Preparing the next generation to responsibly manage their wealth and, in some cases, the wealth and legacy of their family is a common concern for our clients,” said Paul Simons, President of Private Banking, Wealth & Trust at Boston Private. “Our Mentorship and Preparedness Program provides these young adults with practical knowledge taught by experts in an intimate setting, ensuring they leave the program with the interest and aptitude to be stewards of their family’s wealth and family values.”
The MAPP curriculum was developed collaboratively by professors from the world-renowned Chicago Booth School of Business and experts from Boston Private’s Center for Wealth Planning Excellence. The six-week virtual program covers a broad range of pertinent topics, including personal financial planning and goal setting, investment fundamentals, generational wealth planning, philanthropic giving, security and leadership. Courses will be taught by Boston Private advisors and Chicago Booth professors.
“Chicago Booth is excited to partner with Boston Private in the development and launch of the MAPP executive education program. Booth faculty, practitioners, and subject matter experts will create the perfect learning and impactful environment for participants,” said Mark Lewis, Executive Director of Chicago Booth Executive Education.
Upon finishing the program, participants will receive a Chicago Booth Executive Education certificate of completion, as well as ongoing mentorship from a Boston Private wealth advisor and opportunities to stay connected with fellow MAPP participants.
