Once you get past the statistics, there are some great points in this piece and as always, it makes a lot of sense and the suggestions are not rocket science either, but they are not always easily sorted!

Family unity is key to aid communication and there needs to be a sense of purpose that is not just about wealth/money.  Family values are integral to success and there is a recognition that family firms need to invest in the next generation, although interestingly, as Andrew Keyt points out, not confusing this with necessarily 'finding then next CEO'

Well worth a read.
