Credit Risk Management, SMEs and Family Firms

Credit Risk Management, SMEs and Family Firms

Professor Panikkos Poutziouris, Rector and Professor in Entrepreneurship and Family Business at UCLan Cyprus will be one of the speakers in the upcoming “Credit Risk Management Forum” which is being organized by Infocredit Group on 25 September 2019 at The Landmark Nicosia.

In his presentation “Doing Business with SMEs and Family Firms – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, Panikkos Poutziouris will shed light on how owner-managers prefer to finance their growth and expound the additional layers of risk that the owner-managed family business model carries. Despite their proliferation, SMEs and family firms are often classified as risky businesses, as only one in ten firms reach the third generation of family ownership-management. In addition to the business and financial risks which may arise, there are often non-financial risks that relate to the interwoven family-ownership-management subsystems, governance and succession complications.

Mr. Poutziouris is Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Business as well as Rector at UCLan Cyprus and Fellow of the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge. He has been leading educational, training, research and consultancy initiatives for family business owner-managers-entrepreneurs in cooperation with many stakeholders e.g. European Commission, OECD, UNDP, HRDA-Cyprus Chambers, Future Generation–Egypt, Institute for Family Business-UK, UBS Wealth Management, Tilney Fund Management, NatWest Bank, Coop Bank, BDO Stoy Hayward, KPMG, Grant Thornton, PWC etc.  He is an active Fellow of the Family Firm Institute and former President of the International Family Enterprise Research Academy.

Τhe “Credit Risk Management Forum” will take place on 25 September 2019, 08:30-13:30, at The Landmark Nicosia (former Hilton Cyprus).
