I am delighted to share with you the latest issue of our Newsletter. The theme for this issue is "Family Business Governance." Good governance makes family businesses accountable, healthy, efficient and long-lasting. Well-governed family businesses are rewarded by investors and earn respect from all stakeholders. The articles selected for this issue reflect contemporary scholarly thinking on family business governance and its implications for family firms. An important implication of these papers is that family firms need to start early to prepare the ground for effective governance systems. Moreover, these initiatives need to improve focus on family governance, which is often overlooked.

Hope you will find these summaries interesting. The issue also includes Research Precis of two Family Business Review articles relevant to the theme. Please visit our blog for summaries of recent news on family business.

As always, I encourage you to send your feedback and interesting articles which we can consider for inclusion in our forthcoming newsletters.

Best regards
