2024 NextGen Survey

Success and succession in an AI world

As the reins of family businesses are set to pass into the hands of a new generation of leaders, a profound transformation is underway—one fueled by the catalytic force of generative AI (GenAI). This moment marks not only a change in leadership, but a strategic shift towards harnessing a fundamentally new technology within family businesses and family offices.

Harnessing the potential of GenAI isn’t only about any one firm staying competitive; it’s about shaping the global economic landscape. NextGen as future business owners—and important inheritors of the largest wealth transfer in history—have a unique responsibility towards their business, its employees, their families, society and the environment.

Our survey findings and the important actions we outline in the report across three critical areas—innovation, trust and succession—show that these changes cannot be delayed until the next natural transition of generational ownership. They must begin now.
