Family business services: Building lasting value from family values

Helping families and their businesses achieve their long-term goals

As a family-owned business, you face unique challenges. You also have unique strengths.

Where other companies might measure success in quarters, you measure them in generations. Where others might focus uniquely on value, you also focus on values—including preserving the company for the next generation, and perhaps making your mark on the world.

On the other hand, family dynamics and non-business considerations can derail even the most profitable enterprise—particularly when catalysed by events such as a generational transition, or an external economic crisis.

At PwC, we know that the most successful family firms are those in which there is a good balance between professional management, responsible business ownership and a healthy family dynamic. We have a keen understanding of the unique dynamics of family business, and we have the tools, experience and focus to help you optimise the positive forces in your family enterprise, while anticipating and minimising any conflicts or perturbations.

No matter what your size, industry or market, PwC’s family business advisors are there to assist you. From strategy and governance, to business transition and private wealth, to putting your values in action, we have the tools, people and presence to help you manage your family enterprise and build lasting value.

We invite you to explore our family business services, and to contact us for more information

What's a family business?

  1. At least one representative of the family or kin is formally involved in the governance of the firm.
  2. Listed companies: if the persons who established or acquired the firm from their families or descendants possess at least 25% or more of the decision-making rights mandated by their share capital.
  3. The share capital controlled by the family is at least in the second generation or beyond.
