Family business leaders typically grapple with more complexity through the various stages of growth and transition. These executives face the usual challenges of running a business, but at the same time they are navigating family dynamics and relationships. This intertwining of business and family can be challenging, and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. With a generation entering retirement in droves and a changing business landscape, conversations around succession and financial planning are increasingly important for family enterprises.

On April 27, 2023, The Globe and Mail hosted a webcast moderated by wealth management reporter, Clare O’Hara. This conversation featured family enterprise experts and business owners, who shared their strategies and insights on family business planning.
