Our points of difference

Our dedicated Strategy team combines international experience with local market access. We are connected into the wider PwC network, which has over 2,500 people in 12 countries across the region, as well as with PwC’s global industry sector teams to provide industry insight and international benchmarking.

With a multinational, multilingual team based in four key locations, our team has the ability to gather and interpret information and expertise that is not publicly available. Connecting with our other specialist teams in Tax, Legal and M&A, we can provide a depth of understanding across a range of areas to ensure that our recommendations are specific and achievable.

Being part of PwC, our analysis, advice and conclusions are objective, practical and financially-grounded.

All of which means we reduce uncertainty in our clients’ business decisions, and maximise the chances of achieving a successful outcome.
