SGV hosts event for family businesses

On 15 January 2016, founders, as well as representatives, of family businesses attended a discussion on the various concerns confronting families and their businesses. The event, which was held at the Makati Shangri-la Hotel, featured EY Global Leader for Family Business Peter Englisch who visited Manila to share his insights on topics such as family constitution, succession planning, and family governance. Given that issues are personal and unique to each family business, Mr. Englisch said that services extended to family businesses should be calibrated according to the requirements of the company as “one size does not fit all.”




Also present during the event were SGV Chairman and Managing Partner Vic Noel; Vice-Chairman and Deputy Managing Partner Itos Cruz; Tax Leader Willie Villanueva; Market Group 4 Leader Daks Balili (FAB); Partners Jules Riego, Louie Ferrer, Mike Sabado, Fidela Reyes; and Senior Manager Marga Mallari-Acaban.
