Almost three-quarters of family businesses around the world expect to see steady growth ahead, a new survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers reveals. Two-thirds (65%) of family businesses reported growth in the last 12 months, and 15% are aiming to grow aggressively over the next five years. “This year’s research tells us that the family business segment remains resilient and dynamic even though the post-recession economic environment is proving tough and there are continuing pressures in relation to skills shortages, innovation, and governance,” says PwC. The survey results come from a poll of 2,400 owners and managers in 40 different countries.
