Experience and judgement

Our advice is delivered by our in-house team of experienced professionals – drawn from diverse backgrounds including banking, government, strategy consulting, the not-for-profit sector, and the law – and informed by high-quality conversations held by well-connected individuals.

Few other business models depend on human relationships as much as ours:
this, above all, is what makes us different.

We hold ourselves to exacting ethical standards, and we take on work only once we are confident we can provide value. As owners of our firm, we are discerning about who we work for and with, and this approach to doing business has helped us build a blue-chip client base around the world.
