Eurasia Strategic Consulting

Macro-Advisory is the leading independent strategic business consultancy in the Eurasia region. We are a completely independent Eurasia-based advisory firm, with a wide international reach and a clear commercial focus on the work we carry out for our clients.

Independent Local Commercial

We work with many of the world’s largest corporations and financial agencies and provide them with economic, political, industry and risk advice across all industry sectors and throughout the entire Eurasian region. Our clients include 80 multinationals, trade organisations and financial institutions working across the region.

Macro-Advisory collects and analyses primary-sourced intelligence on behalf of our clients. Our team is based in the region and have been first-hand observers to the often dramatic economic, political, and social changes that have taken place since the early 1990s. Our analysts understand how government and regulatory structures work, how processes are shaped and how decisions are made.

Our experience and expertise help our clients understand not only the industry and economic data, but also the whole environment in which they operate. That includes localization requirements, the impact of sanctions and how government contracts and procurement procedures work. This leads to better-informed strategic and tactical decision making.


Macro-Advisory is not part of a larger financial or industrial group. The company is wholly owned by senior management and is completely independent of any external pressures. It means we can provide our clients with clear and unbiased strategic analysis and advice.

We do not take market positions and are not seeking to sell assets. We do not promote government positions or lobby on behalf of industry or trade groups.  We are positioned as trusted advisors to our clients and help make the best decisions for the company and stakeholders.


Our team comprises of multi-disciplined experts who are based in Eurasia. Unlike others, we do not “fly-in” analysts with different disciplines, who rarely work together and barely know the region. Our team lives and works in the region and their relationships are both broad and deep.

Our network of contacts across all twelve Eurasia states supplements our experience and expertise and enables us to provide a strong and clear assessment of opportunities and risks for our clients.  We are best positioned to monitor changes across the region in terms of economics, industries, politics, and governance.


We understand that our clients need to make commercial decisions, both on a tactical and strategic basis. The advice we provide fully reflects that. We are not academics or investment bankers or political lobbyists. We combine all relevant information in one package and use that to support the recommendations and advice. 

We help our clients to cut through the perceptions and the noise in the region. Our role is to help them understand the real situation and context in any country or industry or in any specific situation which is directly relevant for them.
