  • Importance of Family Managed Businesses

    In most economies, family businesses account for two thirds of businesses with an estimated 70% to 90% contribution to Global GDP (Family First Institute). 33% of the Fortune Global 500 are linked to family managed businesses (Deloitte). Family businesses create 50% to 80% jobs worldwide. With contributions to national income, growth and employment, family businesses truly serve as the bedrock of any economy. In addition, family businesses have the world over significant share in philanthropic efforts.

    There are over 50,000 family businesses operating in Pakistan (Center for International Private Enterprise). This excludes small roadside businesses in the country. And over 80% of companies listed on the Pakistan Stock Exchange are in same way related to a family business.

  • Challenges facing Family Managed Businesses

    Only 3% of all family businesses worldwide remain in business for more than three generations.

    Family firms differ from other businesses as they combine family and business. This distinctive feature is an asset but may turn into a liability if not managed effectively.

    As family managed firms evolve they become complex. The transition from first generation (founder) to the second (Sibling partnership) and third (Cousin Confederation) generation presents a number of questions related to governance and sustainability. Research indicates if a structured approach is not employed during each transition there is a high likelihood that the family business may not achieve its full potential and succumb to competition as a result of infighting.

    "Most critical issues facing family businesses are family-based issues more than they are business-based issues"
