Family businesses play an important role in Argentina from both the economic and the social standpoints. This is borne out by the national wealth they generate and the many workers they employ. Nevertheless, a substantial proportion of family businesses do not survive beyond the second or third generation. 


The family businesses that have achieved steady, consolidated growth over time are those who have known how to combine the three mainstays of any family business: ownership, the family and management.


Accordingly, family businesses need unique responses to specific situations. They require a global approach that adapts to the complexity of their reality.
