Education & research

“If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail” - Abraham Maslow

So much about family businesses remains misunderstood. We have been developing our own understanding for over 25 years and every day we learn something new. This will never stop.

ICFIB has always worked with educational institutions across the globe to explore and understand the scope of issues which can impact on management, ownership, families, individuals and those working with them.

We have a range of publications, research and articles available for our members and wider community.

We also work in collaboration with trade associations to understand issues that affect their members who are family or owner-managed businesses, such as the British Jewellers Association. This also includes professional bodies and representatives across the world.
