Business Family

The Asian Business Family Survey is a ground breaking initiative that explores the concerns of some of Southeast Asia’s leading business families as leadership changes from one generation to the next. Through interviews with owners of the region’s largest business groups, the Survey seeks to better understand how these top families manage their family, business, financial wealth, and community affairs.

The Survey identifies challenges that the families may face in maintaining family and business continuity as well as best practices employed to enhance continuity. The Survey recently concluded its interview stage and initial findings show that Southeast Asia’s business families may not follow the same trajectory as their Western counterparts.

Abacus Capital is sponsoring the Asian Business Family Survey in collaboration with Dr. Randel Carlock, Sara Hamilton, and Stuart Lucas. Dr. Randel Carlock is INSEAD’s Senior Affiliate Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise and Director of the Wendel Centre for Family Enterprise; Sara Hamilton is the CEO of Family Office Exchange and is on the faculty of the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, and Stuart Lucas is Chairman of the Wealth Strategist Network LLC, and author of “Wealth: Grow It, Protect It, Spend It and Share It”.
