We help our clients succeed across Africa.

About us.

We are an Africa-focused consultancy specialising in strategy and risk management, due diligence and non-litigious dispute resolution. Since 1997, companies, institutions, funds and investors have relied on our insights and access to inform their business decisions, strengthen their resilience, and secure investment returns.


We only cover Africa. Since 1997, we have helped clients seize commercial opportunities on the continent, build the right relationships, and prepare for and adapt to changing risk landscapes.


We have deep relationships with leading public and private sector actors across Africa. This allows our clients to benefit from clear lines of sight on evolving business environments and stakeholder dynamics, and to generate positive impacts.


We have a global client list which includes FTSE100, S&P500 and CAC40 companies from the energy, mining, financial services, agriculture and FMCG sectors, among others. Our client base includes both companies with a long-established presence in Africa and those making their first investments.

Our services.

Our services are tailored, client-centric and purpose-driven. We reconcile country and industry-specific contexts with each client’s specific needs, questions and concerns.
