Abstract

Despite an extensive literature on the role of managerial capabilities in enhancing firm performance, relationships
between socioemotional wealth, managerial capabilities, and performance in a family business context
have not been investigated. This study relates FIBER dimensions (five characteristics of family firms commonly
used in studies of family businesses) to socioemotional wealth, managerial capabilities, and firm performance,
and empirically tests a mediated model using a sample of 150 small and medium-sized family businesses from
the United Arab Emirates. The results illustrate that managerial capabilities mediate the relationships between
three FIBER dimensions (identification of family members with the firm, binding social ties, and emotional
attachment of family members) and performance.
