Family Business Network (FBN) Asia is a regional chapter of FBN International, a private, not-for-profit organization. Founded in 1989 in Lausanne, Switzerland, FBN International has become the world’s leading community of business-owning families, representing more than 11,300 individual members from more than 3,400 families in 65 countries across 5 continents.
Based in Singapore, FBN Asia covers Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and Sri Lanka. The network offers a unique and safe space for its members to share best practices and ideas on how to grow, succeed and prosper in their family, business and personal spheres.
Led “By Families, For Families”, the regional chapter also addresses issues prevalent in Asian family businesses – particularly in the areas of business transition, family dynamics, leadership succession, strategic philanthropy and active citizenship. It thrives on the principles of trust, confidentiality, mutual respect and non-solicitation to facilitate intimate sharing and exchange of wisdom.
Our vision is to create a vibrant community of family businesses that serves as a model of success and longevity. Through research, capacity building and outreach programmes, we aim to bring progressive family businesses and thought leaders to create an environment of deep, shared learning to effect positive social change.
