Financial industry comes together to help victims of Miami’s Surfside collapse

NEW YORK and MIAMI, Aug. 18, 2021 /CSRwire/ — The Funds Society, MFS and Ninety One are working together to raise funds for the victims and families of the Surfside tragedy in Miami; the event will take place on September 9 at 6:30 p.m. ET in Miami.

The collapse of Champlain Towers South in the Surfside Condominium is a terrible loss and has a lasting impact on the South Florida community and far beyond. Many investment managers know someone who has been tragically affected. The asset and wealth management industry strives to raise funds with proceeds going to the Global Empowerment Mission. GEM raises for three separate funds that support the inhabitants themselves, rehousing efforts for survivors who lived in the building, and a general program on the collapse. ( )

The event will take place at the Rusty Pelican in Miami on September 9, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. If you want to donate, attend and/or participate in the event as a corporate sponsor or as an individual, please contact Elena Santiso at or Alicia Jiménez at

Funds Society, Ninety One and MFS will be joined in supporting the event by AXA IM, Janus Henderson, Schroders, Jupiter, Insigneo, Bolton Capital, Thornburg IM, BNY Mellon IM, Brown Advisory, RWC, Natixis IM and Manulife Investment Management. Sponsorship opportunities are always open.
