Fear, confusion and uncertainly surround many aspects of Wills and Estates Administration. This is an unnecessary and disempowering state of affairs. At Appleton Fiduciary Services, we seek to address this. We believe that open, regular and informed communication with our clients and their heirs is empowering and helps ensure their peace of mind, often during difficult times. To this end we will be publishing a quarterly newsletter, the Appleton Times, that will not only keep our clients and their heirs up to date on Fiduciary Services, but will also serves as a platform for answering queries and questions. Enjoy the read and we would welcome your feedback! https://appleton.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Appleton-Times-Print-Ready.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0OrAkaJQi_9n2-cFRG8T_HOXmVRFkLRQPrisCtrl8EVuP2PhqjmTkWgNg

Yet, after decades for corporate social responsibility programmes across the globe, critics note that there is precious little to show and in fact, the public’s trust in big business is declining. This has propelled business to rethink its role in society and morph from programmes of corporate social responsibility towards new policies of creating shared value. This article discusses this important shift.
