Frontier Strategy GroupSupporting

Frontier Strategy Group (FSG) is the leading information and advisory services firm for emerging market executives. Through a combination of data, platform access, and custom engagements, we power the key business activities of emerging market business leaders at the world’s leading multinational corporations with one goal in mind: to help our clients outperform in emerging markets.

By partnering with more than 200 multinationals for nearly a decade, we have developed a unique perspective on the workflows, management priorities, and key challenges of our clients. We have assembled this perspective into an integrated solution that powers and supports business-critical activities, such as strategic planning, commercial execution, and market monitoring.

Our clients have traditionally relied on a combination of management consultants, data subscriptions, and niche research providers. We regularly hear complaints that these models are sub-optimal due to their high costs, inconsistency of quality and service, and inefficiency for clients.

We believe emerging markets are unique and therefore require a different approach.

Our partnership model provides clients with a unique combination of custom engagements to address their most urgent business priorities and continuous and unmetered access to our FrontierView platform and proprietary data index. The result is a cost-effective, continuous, and highly tailored approach that evolves with our clients’ ever-changing needs.
