Event Focus

In this panel discussion, we will hear reflections on how family businesses have adapted their business in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Speakers will explore the specific risks faced by the family business sector as we begin to adapt to a new reality.

The session will highlight how advisors can support business families to protect and transition their business and family wealth for the long term through a combination of:

  • ownership structures;
  • succession planning; and
  • effective family governance frameworks.
