Mattioli Woods is pleased to announce the establishment of a partnership with Family Business United (FBU) to support family businesses across the UK.
What is FBU?
Family Business United is a rallying point and independent voice for the family business community. Using a blend of local and national events alongside social media campaigns, FBU champions and celebrates the contribution that family businesses make to the UK economy through enterprise and innovation and, in turn, the generation of employment and wealth. FBU, led by founder Paul Andrews, understands the importance of family firms and is proud to represent such a diverse range of businesses that are the engine room of economies in the UK.
Mattioli Woods and FBU so far
Our client base has always been heavily weighted towards this sector and we are all deeply thankful for the contribution it has made to the UK economy and to our success over the years. Like FBU, we entirely support the ongoing importance and dynamism of family business and so it is only right that we partner with a body with the same ideals as ourselves.
We have been working closely with Paul Andrews and FBU for the past two years, attending events in Leicester, Newmarket, York and London, while also providing content for the FBU website. Mattioli Woods involvement has been central to the continued and skilled development of this relationship.
Doug Ryan, Wealth Management Director at Mattioli Woods said, “We’re very much looking forward to working together and have many ideas that will be helpful to the family business sector and all the people who work so hard within it, even in the most difficult of times.”
Paul Andrews said, “Family Business United is an award-winning magazine and resource centre celebrating the contribution family businesses make in terms of employment, income generation, wealth creation and community support. We are delighted to have Mattioli Woods as a partner and to share their resources and insights to help family firms across the UK achieve their goals.”
