On the ground. Mirabaud has always been committed to lending its active support to organisations which share their same objective: to have a positive impact on society as a whole by placing human beings at the heart of their responsibilities.
As the first men to circumnavigate the world non-stop by hot air balloon, Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones wanted to use their fame to benefit the plight of children facing conflict, natural disasters and illness around the globe. This initiative gave rise to the Winds of Hope Foundation, which Mirabaud supported for six years, from 2011 until June 2016. The foundation is currently working to combat noma, a disease primarily afflicting populations and children living in conditions of extreme poverty.
Set up by the United Nations in 1994, Interpeace has had the status of an independent organisation since 2000. It supports and accompanies initiatives aimed at creating the conditions for lasting peace throughout the world. Within the scope of the partnership concluded with Mirabaud in 2011, the Group donates to Interpeace a portion of the performance fees generated by one of its funds in order to secure the initiative's success.
