Toine Knipping is involved in managing or coordinating several sustainable business activities. He is the Chairman of the Amicorp Group, where he is responsible for strategic development. As a co-founder, he is closely connected and involved with the ongoing global development of new tax-compliant and efficient investment solutions, as well as the development of new markets and opportunities.
He has been instrumental in convincing multiple High Net Worth Individuals to structure their wealth in ways that not only serve their family’s needs for financial security, but also create common endeavors that reflect a common mission and common values which help to keep the family’s members, business, wealth, and ideals together for more than just one or two generations. Toine regularly speaks at universities, conferences, and seminars on developments in international taxation and financial structuring.
In addition, he is involved in a variety of often agricultural business ventures that serve to demonstrate the impact small investments can have. He strongly believes that all relevant change in the world ever has come from small groups, with a razor-sharp focus. If enough people simultaneously make impact investments, however small, or organize sustainable efforts, we will jointly change the world. One of the companies he invests in has been instrumental in developing new applications for aloe vera-based supplements and health drinks. Some of those supplements and creams are based on ancient recipes.
In 2012, Toine authored Mind Your Business, a book that links one’s spiritual life with advice on how to run a business. It encourages everyone to truly believe in themselves and to passionately dedicate their talents to meaningful efforts, in order to be happy and successful in life.
Toine loves the outdoors. He has been hiking, scuba diving and skydiving in many parts of the world. He particularly enjoys Bali, the Himalayas, the African Wild and the Southern Cone of Latin America. He strongly promotes the protection of endangered species, such as rhinoceros and elephants, in Southern Africa.
Toine lives between Singapore and South Africa, with his wife Paula.
