Family Owned Businesses

Tapping into a powerful dynamic

The majority of UK companies are family-run, and owner-managed businesses account for a significant proportion of the workforce.

Running a successful business as a family, presents unique challenges. But that special dynamic can also define and steer success in powerful ways. Our highly experienced business advisors can help you respond to the key issues you face, while also identifying and making the most of opportunities to strengthen your business’ performance.

Being able to talk through a sensitive business issue with an impartial expert can help to avoid the potential pitfalls unique to family-run businesses. Over many decades, we’ve developed effective tools and techniques for finding and securing the best outcomes for the family and its business. We take a long-term, partnership-based approach, and often liaise across generations to ensure smooth running and shared success for all. 

Whether you are just starting out, or have decades of successful trading behind you, our network of family business specialists can provide practical, expert advice to achieve your financial and non-financial goals.

Typical issues we can help with include:

  • Strategic business advice
  • Raising finance
  • Leadership development
  • Risk management and governance
  • Financial and performance management
  • Restructuring
  • Succession planning
  • Tax planning
  • Wealth management
  • Compliance and administrative support

Connecting your family and your business

With in-depth understanding and experience of the intricacies at play with owner-managed businesses, we can ensure you use them – alongside legal and financial tools and expertise – to your ultimate advantage.

Long-term planning is crucial, and we place great emphasis on succession planning alongside strategically sound business growth, tailoring our services to suit your specific circumstances.

That’s why we created Family Business Connect, a unique software platform that helps family and owner-managed businesses identify opportunities, reduce risks and safeguard their futures, with access to unrivalled understanding, support and guidance.
