When most people think of investments, they tend to think of traditional stocks. Maybe even specific ones come to mind. Other popular options consist of actual options, futures, mutual funds, ETFs, forex and commodities. Notice anything missing from this list? If you were Blavatnik, entrepreneur extraordinaire, you would. You’d notice that the most important investment of all was not all that list: philanthropy. Although most may know Blavatnik for his fascinating biography, his billions of dollars or the many achievements he can list under his name, one of his proudest credentials is being known as a philanthropist.

The New York Academy of Science Len Blavatnik Award is just one example of this. This very important academy gives out awards to young scientists to not only reward and recognize their important achievements, academics and sacrifices, but also to encourage them to continue dedicating their lives to science and staying the course where their passion is involved. Without such a prestigious award, who knows how many bright minds would turn away from an otherwise promising future?

So if you have all your other investments handled, now’s the time to consider philanthropy. Blavatnik has.
