Global family business survey UK results

We talked to 1,952 family business owners and managers in over 30 countries for our third global survey.

The survey highlights the significant contribution family businesses make to economies and communities around the world.

By talking to a large number of family and non-family members in board positions we discover how solid foundations for growth are established, the challenges these businesses face and what the future holds.

Key facts:

  • Family businesses generate over 25% of the UK GDP
  • The global survey had a sample of 2,000 businesses. The UK sample of 100 was largely businesses with turnover in excess of £20m, mainly representing manufacturing and construction.
  • The UK was amongst the least confident that they could recruit staff with the right skills
