AlphaBeta was founded in 2015 by economists who had considerable experience in both academia and private sector consulting. They saw a need for a new breed of consultants who could marry academic rigour with commercial relevance to help solve the world’s most pressing issues, including climate change, population growth and inequality, and technological change.
Those founding principles shape our values today. We are pragmatic and client-focused, only accepting work that we believe ourselves best-placed to conduct, and only where is scope for real impact. We do not want transactional interactions; rather, we aim to build enduring relationships and advance the public policy agenda.
We bring the best expertise to bear on any given issue, combining macroeconomics, econometrics, big data analysis, business analytics and strategic thinking.
Our recommendations are written in clear, plain English to help a CEO-level audience achieve results.
We are independent and ethical, committed to maintaining client confidentiality, and honest about what we know and what we don’t. We reject work that we think has questionable ethical implications.
And we’re a great place to work. We are non-hierarchical and inclusive, upholding the obligation to dissent. We demand high standards, led from the top, and have a strong focus on apprenticeship, mentoring and training. We want to be the best environment for exceptional people: a place for talented people with a passion for shaping business and society to come and develop their skills.
