Strategic Advising

We help leadership teams break the status quo, end stagnation, and put their organizations on trajectories for success in transforming markets. Our advising approach is to listen first, then analyze, apply appropriate tools where necessary, and develop an end-to-end, coherent strategic solution in partnership with our clients.

We focus on growth, and pride ourselves on flexibility, creativity and a relentless focus on the big-picture, fundamental and strategic challenges of our clients.

We have experience in the automotive, aerospace, media, corporate learning, and financial service industries. We have an extensive network of partners and associate consultants across Europe and North America.

Recent projects have included:

  • Development of investor presentations for start-up and scale-up companies
  • Through our network, establishing countless collaborations between companies in mobility
  • Advised MSCI in the development of the Future Mobility and Smart Cities equity indexes – ETFs outperforming the market with insight and focus
