The performance of any organisation is affected not only by its own operations, but also by market conditions. On average 25 per cent of business performance is attributable to the success of the management team, and 75 per cent is attributable to economic forces that affect the whole market.

Global markets are being transformed by powerful economic forces, including the rapid growth of emerging economies, accelerating technological and demographic trends, climate change and commodity volatility. By bringing economic and strategy skill sets together, we aim to help businesses and governments adapt and prosper in dynamic markets.

We take macroeconomic analysis from the 30,000-foot level and bring it down to the 3-foot level, translating it into actionable advice for our clients. We not only help clients to understand current trends, but to see “around the corner” and pre-empt the second-and third-order implications of these trends for our clients.
