The objective of this exploratory research was to identify factors that influence the ownership vision of Colombian family-owned business, in other words, the purpose of ownership in the families. The initial research model theoretically established that there are different combinations of these factors that influence ownership vision. A wellstructured questionnaire was applied to 32 companies of different sizes, generations, and sectors. A factorial and multiple linear regression analysis was performed which indicated an influence of: 1) a percentage of family managers (family factor); 2) the total number of family members (family factor); and 3) the return on equity (wealth factor).
