How confident is the European and UK family business sector? Our report shares the views and approaches families are taking for continued success, in light of challenges such as the ‘war for talent’.
Family businesses across Europe are feeling good about their future. That’s the message from our new annual survey, which this year received more than 1,100 responses from family business owners across Europe. Despite ongoing challenges, these businesses seem to be moving forward confidently: they are planning to reinvest their profits into their businesses and seeking new opportunities to help them foster sustainable growth.
Within the UK, we find ourselves in a unique political and economic situation. In this report, we show what family businesses are thinking about their prospects for the future, and compare the view from the UK with those elsewhere in Europe. Despite the current uncertainty, UK family businesses are demonstrating their resiliency and resourcefulness, with some 84% confident about their performance over the next 12 months.
