Family Business 

Family owned and managed businesses make a vital contribution to the national economy.

To effectively manage a family business you need to make a commitment to manage the all-important 'Family Component'. The Family Component brings with it a number of unique management challenges as well as opportunities.

In KPMG, we hold a privileged position of working with many family businesses and this provides us with a unique opportunity to observe how these businesses grow profitably and sustainably. With decades of experience working with family businesses and with many KPMG advisers coming from family businesses themselves, we understand that the nature of a family business is inherently different from a non-family business. We pulled together a unique team of professionals within our firm and developed an equally unique portfolio of services that address the specific needs of family businesses and their owners. We help them achieve their objectives and secure the long-term prosperity of both business and family.

The European Family Business Barometer

European Family Business (EFB) and KPMG have joined forces to bring an insight into the confidence levels of family businesses, identifying the opportunities and challenges affecting their operations in the short, medium and long term. The surveys will be conducted twice a year to measure the changing issues facing family businesses.

Financing family business growth through individual investors

A new KPMG International survey has found that 58 percent of family businesses are currently seeking external financing to fund their investment plans, but finding the right strategic investment partner can be challenging.
