t hardly seems possible that almost two decades have passed since the FFI Fellows were inaugurated in London in 2001 – 72 “first Fellows” in all! Next month, when we announce the 2020 Fellows, we will enter the third decade of this group, which represents the highest level of professional designation within the organization.

FFI Fellows demonstrate ongoing expertise and commitment to the field of family enterprise and here’s how they helped us meet the challenges of 2020.

These individuals, who come from around the world and across disciplines, have accessed and completed programs of curated material and research-based resources with their peers and a highly skilled faculty—developing a global network of fellow students who advise and study multi-generational families.

Please join us in congratulating their outstanding achievement.
