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.
NBC demonstrates that this is also the case in Canada through the NBC Canadian
Family Index (TSX: NBCFAM / NBCFAMTR), which tracks the performance of
large cap family-controlled companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. National Bank
Investments also offers an investment product replicating the NBC Canadian Family
Index, the NBI Canadian Family Business ETF NFAM (TSX:
NFAM). Finally, NBC also publishes thematic reports on The Family
Advantage featuring an overview of family-controlled businesses in Canada, the evolution of
the NBC Canadian Family Index, as well as interviews with business leaders
responsible for the success of some of Canada’s key family-controlled businesses.
