Which is the best bank for family businesses?

By Nicholas Moody

Finance is crucial to help build successful family businesses, and although increasing numbers are looking to non-bank channels, traditional banks remain a key source of funding.

A KPMG International survey showed that 58 percent of family businesses are currently seeking external financing to fund their investment plans, but unearthing the right partner is challenging.

CampdenFB is carrying out an online survey as part of a special report on financing the family business in FB65.

We'd like family businesses from around the world to complete the survey to gauge the competency and service levels of banks in your region. The Top 10 banks will be published in the upcoming edition of CampdenFB.
