PwC's 2018 US Family Business Survey

April 2019

"The release of our ninth PwC Global Family Business Survey comes at a time of extraordinary transformation. Digital technology is disrupting whole industries; sustainability is becoming central to the conduct of business; in the corporate and financial worlds, winning trust is more important than it's ever been; and millennials represent an enduring demographic change.

We believe that family businesses have a competitive advantage at a time like this.

Yet one consistent finding since we started this biannual survey in 2002 is that many family businesses are not yet turning these inherent advantages into a winning strategy to help secure profitable, long-term legacies. This latest survey suggests there is a great opportunity here. Indeed, a healthy 75% of our survey respondents felt that having a clear set of values created a competitive advantage."
