Wealth manager Mattioli Woods plc has launched a new national partnership with Alzheimer’s Research UK focused on boosting research, improving treatments and raising awareness about dementia.
The Group – which operates throughout 11 offices in the UK – says that it is the biggest single problem facing health services today and one that is impacting many of its employees and clients. It says it poses an enormous challenge and demands an urgent and substantial response.
Alzheimer’s Research UK will become the Group’s charity of the year for the next two years with the aim to raise £150,000 during its vital fundraising partnership to help transform lives, identify life-changing treatments and eventually a cure. It intends to engage employees, clients and partners to raise money for the charity.
Ian Mattioli MBE, Chief Executive Officer of Mattioli Woods, commented: ‘Our new charity partnership is one I am immensely proud to be involved with. Dementia is one of the most misunderstood conditions in the UK and the money raised by Mattioli Woods is going to fund ground-breaking research that will change the lives of people impacted by it.
‘We started out in business many years ago as retirement planners and still look after many of our original clients. We have seen first-hand the devastating effect dementia has on families, and we look forward to making a huge difference over the next two years.’
To kick off the launch, Mattioli Woods has signalled its corporate commitment with an initial £25,000 donation.
