Approach

 

Our Approach

Proa Global Partners utilizes an innovative demand-driven approach that is both highly interactive and iterative, operating within specific parameters defined collaboratively.  Our overarching objective is to produce engagements that inherently have the flexibility to evolve over time but that necessarily result in building the internal capacity of our clients.

We focus on helping clients discern rigorously and systematically the real drivers of prospective changes in investment conditions at the national, regional and global levels that can fundamentally improve the speed with which successful "go/no-go" decisions can be made on complex cross-border transactions.    

There are four general thematic areas on which we work in close partnership with our principal interlocutors to transfer knowledge and strengthen their internal abilities to make such decisions through:

·        Developing a concrete set of interdisciplinary analytical tools to identify and robustly quantify unexploited 'first mover' investment opportunities and the principal factors that will shape their perishability;

·        Creating a framework to systematically assess the nature and magnitude of commercial, policy/regulatory, product life cycle/technological change and corruption/reputational risks; the determinants of how these drivers will change over time; and developing well-defined markers and roadmaps to calibrate the extent of such changes;

·        Devising and helping to execute on-the-ground operational strategies that guide the mode of entry into new markets and deployment of new products or processes (or the exit of such markets), with the agility to keep competitors as well as potential influential political/policymaker 'investment spoilers' at bay; and

·        Utilizing bona fide independent assessors to measure the economic and social outcomes of the investments underway to capitalize on and strengthen relationships with local stakeholders and policy makers.
