Two sides of a coin: Differing perspectives in Singapore's family businesses.

Two sides of a coin

KPMG in Singapore and CPA Australia present the findings of a year-long study on the successes and challenges of Singapore's family-run businesses.

Two sides of a coin

Over the past year, KPMG in Singapore and CPA Australia conducted research on the successes and challenges of local family-run businesses. We drew on our decades of experience in serving Singapore’s enterprises. We also conducted detailed interviews with 20 local business leaders, both founders and successors, on issues that matter most to them.

Our aim was to examine perspectives from both generations of family-owned businesses when presenting the findings of our year-long endeavor. This was complemented by the participation of 100 successful Singaporean family businesses, in a survey conducted by KPMG.

We are also privileged to present the ideas of two respected family business leaders from Singapore as they discuss their success strategies and plans for the future. We hope you find the new and actionable ideas presented in this publication useful.

Head of Enterprise, KPMG in Singapore
