Dear All,

Wishing you all a Happy and Wonderful Year Ahead!!

We have chosen Succession in Family Business as the main theme for this issue of the Family Business News. We have included the summaries of some articles and gist of press clippings. Hope you will find them interesting.

I am delighted to inform you that we will be organizing the Fifth Asian Invitational Conference on Family Business at the ISB during February 6 – 8, 2015 with “Continuity of Family Business across Generations” as the main theme. As always, we have the Academic Conference on February 6 and Business Conference on February 7 & 8, 2015.  Registration for the conference is now open and details of the same can be viewed at

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