We are very proud of the strength and depth of our client portfolio. For example, in the last year we have helped over 90% of the companies in the FT Global 500 list. And we advise and work with over 100,000 entrepreneurial and private businesses across the world.
Whoever our clients are, our role is clear: to help them find solutions to their important problems and to work with them, and our other stakeholders, to build trust in society.
The current global economic environment presents many challenges and opportunities. When we spoke with business leaders in our most recent Global CEO Sur vey they told us what was high on their list of priorities:
We are passionate about helping private companies and individuals address the challenges that are specific to their business. Every two years we carry out our Global Family Business Survey. This year, we asked almost 2,400 family business decision makers across 42 countries about the key challenges they are facing. They told us that price pressure, intense competition and speed of change were top of their priority list. Innovation, embracing digital opportunities and succession planning were also high on the agenda.
Working with clients to maximise the benefits from each of these priorities, and to find the right solutions to any problems they present, is what PwC does best.
