Who is our customer

During the family business governance workshop in Hong Kong in April 2015, the main presenter, Morten Bennedsen, a professor at INSEAD, introduced a tool called the Family Business Map. This is an analytical tool that helps family business in their long-term planning, in particular on decisions of professionalizing the firm and diluting ownership. The project facilitates use of the tool to benefit FMO’s own clients.

What is our funding objective?

With this project we would like to seize the opportunity to offer this tool in a first phase to 15 of our existing private equity and debt portfolio clients and/or prospective clients. We would select those clients with which we have or plan to have engagement on the governance side through FMO’s Corporate Governance Officer.

Why do we fund this investment?

This project gives a unique opportunity to support the long-term planning of FMO’s family business clients and will help establish stronger relationships with clients who make use of the tool. Ultimately we would expect that some of the selected clients -after having used the tool for their long-term planning- would consider FMO for a further debt or equity investment.
