Welcome to our first edition of Thinking Business - where we aim to share our expertise and ideas with you to support growth and sustainability for your business.
Change is normal for any business. But the pace of change in today’s world means businesses must be more adaptable and innovative than ever, and having the support in place to access specialist advice can often make all the difference.
One of the topics on everyone’s lips in the business community, of course, is Brexit, and perhaps the real challenge will be how we respond to it: how we adapt to the inevitable changes, and where we look for new opportunities. If you’d like more on Brexit, we have a separate publication, so please visit www.trowers.com/Brexit or drop us a line, and we’d be delighted to give you our thoughts.
For this first edition of Thinking Business, though, we’ve decided to focus on some of the more day-to-day issues we come across when talking to clients:
- Family businesses – family businesses account for the vast majority of UK small and medium enterprises, but face a range of issues, from succession to tax treatment to intellectual property. We look at each topic from the perspective of both owner-managers and investors.
- Cyber-security – cyber-hacking is just 3% of the problem, IT risks are much wider – how well-informed are you?
- Private capital in health and care – proper care provision will depend on getting private capital more heavily-involved. We discuss some of the opportunities and pitfalls.
We hope you’ll enjoy reading this – we’ve tried to write it in the way we like to talk to our clients – unstuffy, pragmatic and real conversation. So, please get in touch with any of us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments, and follow us on twitter @Trowers.
