European Family Business Barometer 8th Edition

Our annual barometer, in collaboration KPMG Enterprise, shows Europe’s family businesses remain positive about the future at a time of rising economic and geopolitical uncertainties. Innovation, training and education, and diversification are key priorities as they adapt to a fast-changing world — while planning for succession is increasingly on families’ minds. 

This year, the family business community has sent out a clear message to our decision-makers, improve the Single Market, and focus on fostering global trade. 

Now in its eighth edition, the survey received more than 1,600 responses from family business executives in 27 countries across Europe and highlights family businesses getting ready to hand control to the next generation.
