Alan Howard (Hedge Fund Manager) - Proposed Additions[edit]

This page has been removed from search engines' indexes.

Hi all,

I am writing on the talk page as I have a CoI; I have some proposed additions to the Alan Howard (hedge fund manager) Wikipedia, and was wondering whether an editor would be interested in having a look at them. The current page is a stub: it has some information regarding his professional career, however, there is a lot of information about him that is available online but is not on his page.

Please see below a proposed new section for the Alan Howard (hedge fund manager) Wikipedia page regarding his philanthropic work. All new material is supported by accurate citations. Do not hesitate to contact me on my talk page if you have any further questions.

Philanthropy[edit]

Imperial College London[edit]

In 2014, the Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis at Imperial College London was launched, having received £20.1 million in funding from Brevan Howard on behalf of Imperial alumnus, Alan Howard.[1] This cash gift is one of the largest pledged to a UK business school, matching the £20 million naming gift from Wafic Saïd to the University of Oxford in 1996.[2] The Centre is headed up by Professor Franklin Allen, formerly of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and Professor Douglas Gale, who came to Imperial from New York University’s Stern School.[3]

Howard has also established the ‘Alan Howard Scholarships for Energy Futures’ at Imperial College London, donating funds to the Energy Futures Lab to recruit Israeli PhD students.[4]

Alan Howard has been awarded an honorary degree in recognition of his philanthropic work and the support that he has given to the College.[5]

Contribution to the UK Jewish Community[edit]

In October 2014, the Alan Howard Foundation paired with JW3, a Jewish community centre and arts venue, to launch a speaker series in which world-renowned leaders and experts in their respective fields give an insight into their chosen topics.[6] Featured speakers have included Sir Paul Nurse,[7] Peter Thiel[8] and Nigella Lawson.[9]

Howard founded the Alan Howard Charitable Foundation, which contributes to charities that aims to support Israel and other Jewish causes with a focus on Holocaust education, the homeless and Israeli film.[10] The Alan Howard Charitable Foundation is among the sponsors of the UK Jewish Film Festival.[11]

Alan Howard also presides over a charitable trust which, in 2009/10, donated over £3.7 million to Jewish organisations focusing on religious education and health.[12]

Other Philanthropic Activity[edit]

Alan Howard is on the Parent Leadership Council at Columbia College,[13] a group of philanthropic leaders at the College, and he is also a member of the Harvard Global Advisory Council.[14]

Howard is a member of the Chairman’s Circle at the Royal Opera House, London,[15] having been recognised for his “exceptional philanthropy” since 2008.[16]

He is also a patron of One Family UK, an organisation dedicated to helping those in Israel whose lives have been blighted by terror attacks.[17]

Alan Howard co-chaired the Robin Hood Benefit in 2014,[18] supporting New York's largest poverty-fighting organisation, as well the City's largest private funder of schools, emergency food programmes, homeless shelters and job training services.[19]
