The Barometer has provided an insight into the confidence of the European family businesses. It is refreshing to see whilst the economic landscape has been difficult, family businesses have remained confident and continued to contribute to the regional economies. They are not only surviving but also taking advantages of opportunities for continued growth, investment and success. There continues to be great growth opportunities for investing in current markets and expanding into other countries.
European Family Businesses (EFB) and KPMG have joined forces to create a unique Barometer to measure the confidence levels of the members of EFB, and the opportunities and challenges impacting on their operations in the short, medium and long term.
