Research Reports

Through ANZ’s Privately-Owned Business Barometer research programme, we provide customers with an on-going understanding of the key issues affecting business owners. We have also produced research reports on some of these topics to provide additional insights designed to help business owners identify ways to unlock more growth from their business. The 2015 online survey was conducted in February this year and had around 4000 responses. We discussed the results with focus groups to help interpret the findings. 2015 is the eighth issue of the Barometer and this is the third year it has included agribusiness and farms as a specific sector. 

You can view our recently released insights reports (including both Dairy and Red Meat) on our Business Insights hub.

Please see below a list of additional research reports available for you to download.

ANZ Insight - Greener Pastures

Greener Pastures quantifies the extensive opportunity available to both New Zealand and Australian agricultural sectors as the world's economic growth shifts form west to east.

Equity Partnerships in farming

The agricultural investment environment continues to undergo significant change. Each year we see an increasing number of Equity Partnerships formed where individuals pool their capital with others in order to gain an ownership interest in a larger property.

Passing the baton – Strategies for building a sustained family business across the generations

The issue of succession, particularly in relation to farming, has received significant airtime recently. Much of the focus is on the challenges, either real or perceived, that come from working together as a family in a business. But there are real benefits from running a successful family business.

People for growth – Making the most of a valuable asset

When we ask business owners what’s important about their business, the often tell us ‘culture’ – it’s what keeps the business going and, in many cases, the idea of losing the culture is what puts the brakes on selling the business. While the business owner is important for establishing the culture, it is sustained and developed by people who share the vision and are passionate about seeing the business succeed.
