When it comes to growth, 93 percent of U.S. family businesses are confident as opposed to 81 percent of their global counterparts, according to PwC's latest Global Family Business Survey.

The survey also finds that 76 percent of respondents plan to pass on their companies to the next generation, marking the highest number since 2007 and a major increase from 55 percent two years ago.
