Welcome to the inaugural issue of Perspectives, a magazine produced by Boston Private.
As I reflect on the first half of this year, I’m struck by just how different our world looks and feels now than just a few short months ago. The last few months have challenged us in ways we could have never anticipated. But if there is any silver lining to be found, it’s that this time has brought into focus what’s really important – our families, our health, our communities.
If you have worked with Boston Private for any length of time, you have probably heard us talk about the “WHY of Wealth,” meaning the goals and desires that motivate us to achieve. Whether it’s a desire to build a business, leave a legacy, or support and enrich our communities, our “WHYs” have never been so sharply in focus.
In this magazine, we hope to share with you some of the inspiring stories of our clients and employees pursuing their own “WHYs,” like our profile of education nonprofit SCS Noonan Scholars, which helps high-achieving low-income and underrepresented students get into and graduate from top colleges equipped to achieve their full career potential.
I have seen so many examples of people doing good, caring for one another and pursuing positive change in our world. If you have a story to tell, we would love to hear it! Submit your story.
The last few months have changed our concept and experience of time itself. Whether you are busier than ever juggling new demands at home or work, or you have a newfound abundance of time on your hands, we hope that the content in this issue of Perspectives offers fresh ideas, stories and advice to enrich your days. Please enjoy, and from all of us at Boston Private, we wish you a happy and healthy summer.
