Our purpose is to facilitate the continuity of GCC family businesses over generations.

We seek to identify and address issues which are specific to the GCC region, and contribute to the intellectual progress on topics related to family business management, particularly on succession, family governance, next generation development and family communication. We also endeavor to promote and facilitate the positive role of family businesses in the economy and society.


FBCG’s sole purpose is to promote business continuity, professional governance and social responsibility over generations and cultivate a community of family businesses in the GCC region.


FBCG aspires to create a unique platform for collaboration, strategic relationships, and sharing of knowledge among like-minded GCC family businesses.
