The owners of family businesses “are positive about the future, and the majority are looking to grow the business in the next five years,” says a new survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers. Results from a poll of nearly 2,000 owners and managers across more than 30 different countries “prove that family firms are robust, vigorous and successful. They are ambitious and entrepreneurial and delivering solid profits, even in the continued uncertain economic environment.”

PwC also provides an “interactive” benchmarking tool by which visitors to the site can compare their own metrics to both the quantitative and qualitative data collected from survey participants. Their additive participation in the survey “will not only help you see where you are, relative to your peers, but help you set a strategic course for where you want to go” as a global family business.
