Thought leadership reports

Our sixth survey of owner managed businesses (OMBs) is in some ways a tale of two halves. Initially it reveals worrying signs of lower confidence in the general outlook for 2019 and the prospects for business performance in the year ahead.

Read further into our report, however, and you find the story has a more positive twist. OMBs are still investing in their businesses. Their strategic plans for 2019 are highly consistent with the plans they have been implementing in the last few years. Brexit uncertainties and concerns about any impact on the UK economy do not appear to be deterring businesses from investing in people and technology, or in launching and developing new products and services.
