NBC Canadian Family Index

Family‐controlled firms are a crucial pillar of the global economy, accounting for about 80% of companies worldwide. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the larger public family firms have continued to thrive despite the rise of widely‐held public corporations run by professional managers. They currently represent close to a fifth of the companies in the Fortune Global 500. Moreover, the evidence indicates that large family‐controlled businesses returns have on average outperformed widely‐held companies in many countries.
