KPMG has entered into a strategic alliance with the Institute for Family Business (IFB).

The new partnership will see KPMG’s family business team work alongside the association in a programme of educational and networking events for member organisations.

Gary Deans, Head of Family Business for KPMG in the UK said: “We are delighted to have formed this exciting alliance with the Institute for Family Business. The IFB’s membership, and the broader family business segment, is of prime importance to the UK’s economy as we struggle through the current downturn, and will be a key driver of growth in the future.

“KPMG has made a long term commitment to this sector, both to current owners and the next generation of family business leaders, with our aim to support and nurture them to continue to be the backbone of our economy.

“We understand the ‘family component’ and the impact of that on the success of a family business. Our alliance with the IFB has the aim of ensuring that these important businesses continue to thrive, and that there are powerful voices supporting them.”

IFB Chairman, Ross Warburton, said: “We are delighted that KPMG is now working with us. The company brings a commitment to the family business sector and expertise that are most welcome. The IFB is certain that KPMG will bring enthusiasm and fresh insights to the association’s activities in the months and years to come.”

KPMG has family business teams located across the UK encompassing experts from tax, audit, not for profit and advisory services.
