Report Published: "Insight Report: Running a Family Business"

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Nov 25 2014

Family businesses continue to be a fundamental source of private wealth creation, and a key engine driving the world economy. Despite their dominance, the topic is relatively underresearched in terms of wealth management due to a lack of official data. Family businesses in developing countries are typically first-generation firms, whereas those in Europe are more likely to be in their fourth or fifth generations. Demand for wealth management is higher from family businesses in developed economies, as business owners in developing economies prefer to limit the entry of external advisors. The report also highlights that succession planning services are gaining prominence in developed economies, representing new opportunities for wealth managers and private bankers.
