Thought leadership reports

Our latest owner managed business (OMB) report entitled "Strength amidst uncertainty" finds continued uncertainty amongst UK OMBs.

Whilst it is clear that rising costs, a shortage of skilled staff and the potential impact of Brexit has shaken confidence for 2017, UK OMBs have shown no signs of reducing investment in key areas of their business; namely IT, staff development and sales and marketing activities.

The report finds that business leaders appear to be pragmatic about the UK's economic prospects for 2017, and plan to implement strategies that will allow their businesses to take advantage of opportunities that arise.

Further highlights and a full copy of our annual report are available here.
