About CLSA

CLSA Chairman's Trust

Through the Chairman’s Trust, CLSA aims to provide support to those communities, individuals or groups that have not been so fortunate to directly benefit from Asia’s remarkable growth story. Our mission is to assist with education, health and welfare, commerce and environmental needs through the financing of measurable endeavours in which CLSA staff or CLSA clients are actively involved.

The Trust is run by an independent board of trustees and searches for innovative and efficient ways to deploy charitable donations across all Asian markets and beyond. While fully independent of CLSA, the Trust receives financial and administrative support from the company so that all donations given to the Trust are used to support its operations.
