Bespoke country research & transaction consultancy

We provide tailor-made research and briefing services for our corporate clients

Using our own in-country teams of analysts in the major emerging markets and our network of sources in a wider number of frontier markets we conduct bespoke assignments for clients considering country entry or significant acquisitions.

Clients come to us for our country and political analysis and for power-mapping and country entry reports, high level validation of local partner strategies, execution of stakeholder engagement strategies and deal due diligence. On large due diligence assignments we will work alongside the transaction shops in an advisory role using our country expertise to validate findings for the senior team.

We also provide watching briefs on countries that clients are considering entering or in which there is political and or economic instability. Here our full service macroeconomics capability complements our on the ground political and policy insights. Finally we will monitor major competitors of our clients resident in emerging and frontier markets. Also see our institutional subscription research services.
