Building a Better World
Our purpose goes beyond building wealth for ourselves. It is about using our skills and resources to build prosperity for all. Civilisation’s great leaps forward have been characterised by creative periods when new ideas in philosophy, science, art and commerce have come together to advance human development. The Greeks, Romans and Renaissance Florentines stand out as examples of these golden ages. The simple big idea that lights our path is that creative societies are prosperous societies.

We focus on three elements which, in our view, are key – national governance, the marketplace and communities. Our organisations – the Clermont Group, the Chandler Institute of Governance and the Chandler Foundation – work across these spheres to build strong nations, vibrant marketplaces and prosperous communities.
Clermont Group

Good Corporate Governance is Synonymous with National Prosperity: A nation’s economic strength and vitality is largely dependent on the quality of its corporate leaders and their stewardship of a nation’s resources. Hence, good corporate governance is important for all those concerned with maximising national prosperity.

In Goodness of Business, Richard Chandler writes about the principles of governance in building strong businesses and prosperous economies.
Chandler Institute
of Governance
The Chandler Institute of Governance builds government capacity through training programmes, advisory partnerships, and knowledge creation. We focus on enhancing public service leaders’ capabilities to take up the mantle of public leadership, succeed as policymakers, and serve their citizens better.

Based in Singapore, we are committed to supporting governments around the world. Strong nations with wise public leaders sustain public trust, serving as the foundations for national development and well-being.
Chandler Foundation

The Chandler Foundation, based in the United States, is partnering with other philanthropists to improve lives and change systems. We speak in to the philanthropy industry, sharing our journey and our lessons from over 20 years on the front lines of human development. We believe creative societies are prosperous societies.

Our work sows in to our dream — to see a world flourishing with everyone’s creativity.
