As a global leader in financial services, we understand the enormity of our responsibility to operate as more than just a business. We continuously strive to have a positive impact both socially & environmentally.
On this page, we take a look at some of the recent positive impact activities that have been going on around the company.
Every year offices across the deVere Group network conduct a "Think Pink" day to raise awareness for breast cancer. Each year, the company raise a large amount which is sent to cancer charities to help the fight against cancer.
We also use this day as an opportunity to educate employees and clients on the various ways they can financially protect themselves and their families from the threat of serious illness.
deVere Acuma teamed up with Kings College Dubai to host a breast cancer awareness day. We were honoured to welcome Dr Millicent Bello who conducted an eye-opening seminar for staff, clients and the general public. Dr Bello discussed the ways in which people can self-test themselves, spot early signs and look out for others.
deVere Acuma teamed up with Karma Yoga at the stunning FIVE Palm Jumeriah to host a yoga & protection morning. Those who attended enjoyed a delicious breakfast & relaxing yoga session. Following the session, Thomas Willingham, an area manager from deVere Client Service's department discussed protection planning and the affordable ways in which clients can cover their families.
The importance of health cannot be overstated. As a company we assist our clients in growing their wealth, however, we reiterate the message, that wealth can only be enjoyed if you are in good health.
