We believe that combining economic and geostrategic approaches is the way to deal with complex local market dynamics and navigate the intricacies of today’s financial word.

We have years of experience working on projects in EM involving multinationals, international organisations, state-owned companies and national champions, that we have accompanied during growth periods and crises times. We remain convinced that two things make the difference between success and failure:

  • Having a long-term strategy built on local and global geopolitical and economical trends.
  • Having a tailor-made financial strategy that takes into account real time local complexities.
