ESG ( Strategic Partner)

Since 2010, the Singapore Management University (SMU) had recognised the emergence of Asian business families and discerned that they require specifically contextualised thought leadership and applied knowledge. In response to the growing needs of business families in Asia, SMU established the Business Families Institute (BFI@SMU) in August 2012.

BFI@SMU collaborates with various partners, academic or practice, to be a leader in Asian business family-related knowledge. The Institute also encourages business families to Think Generations, Think Growth, Think Giving and Think Global. In doing so, BFI@SMU addresses business family-specific issues such as succession, family governance, entrepreneurship and wealth management. The mission of BFI@SMU is to enable business family members to be engaged and responsible stewards of their families, businesses and communities, through education, research and ecosystem support.
