This project will finance hte first phase to 15 of existing private equity and debt portfolio clients for the Family Business Map. During the family business governance workshop in Hong Kong in April 2015, the main presenter, Morten Bennedsen, a professor at INSEAD, introduced a tool called the Family Business Map. This is an analytical tool that helps family business in their long-term planning, in particular on decisions of professionalizing the firm and diluting ownership. The project facilitates use of the tool to benefit FMO's own clients.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF FMO
Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW) . A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order. Additional information about this accountability mechanism, including a guide and template for filing a complaint, can be found at: https://www.fmo.nl/
