Written by the Economist Intelligence Unit on behalf of Barclays Wealth, this seventh volume of Barclays Wealth Insights examines the characteristics and motivations of entrepreneurs in a challenging economic environment.
It is based on two main strands of research. First, the Economist Intelligence Unit conducted a survey of 2,300 affluent and wealthy investors with investable assets ranging from £500,000 to in excess of £30 million. Among these 2,300 respondents, 960 were entrepreneurs. Respondents were spread across a number of key international markets, with the highest numbers of respondents from the United States, India, United Kingdom, Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada, Switzerland, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and Monaco. The survey took place between March and April 2008.
This was supplemented with a series of in depth interviews with experts on entrepreneurship. Our thanks are due to the survey respondents and interviewees for their time and insight.
