We help companies with their biggest challenges – market strategies, regulatory reviews, competition inquiries and we help governments design innovative policies and regulatory systems
Our goal was to build a new kind of consulting firm with economics at its heart, and with stability and sustainability as its benchmarks of success. We help high-profile companies all over the world with their biggest challenges – market strategies, regulatory reviews, competition inquiries. And we help governments design innovative policies and regulatory systems. We chose values that were tough to achieve and based on what we care about. They motivate us to work in the right way and to do the right things for clients, and they encourage debate.
Economics is (nearly) everywhere and the economist’s toolkit is large. Clients are surprised at the breadth of our work. Not just the costs of supply, movements in demand, pricing and competitive dynamics. But we are also experts in finance, statistical modelling, game theory, market research and even the psychological side of economics. And we’ve worked in almost every sector imaginable, from fertilisers and oil rigs to handbags and iPads.
In some sectors, economics is so critical that we’ve also built specialist knowledge. Our powerful tools and sector knowledge are valuable. But we try not to stop there. Making an impact for clients means understanding the issues, whether it’s the commercial reality of the business; what is really driving customer behaviour; or the political context. We are also aware that our clients want clear and simple advice, from people they trust. So we place a lot of emphasis on our communications, and on human relationships. We provide complex analysis but plain language – English, German, French or Spanish.
Our reports are often used in legal proceedings and so our evidential standards are high. We never “write to order”. Our work is respected because we are independent and obsessive about the truth.
We are a firm with a diverse workforce spread across different countries, encompassing many cultures and outlooks. We want to reflect and embrace the power of diversity and cultural difference in everything we do for our clients and through our internal work. We are an inclusive workplace where people are free to be who they want to be and able to bring their true selves into the workplace. We will be bold, visible and proactive to make sure that Frontier is and continues to be a workplace that embraces diversity.
Frontier is an economics consultancy with a difference. We provide analytical expertise on a vast range of high-profile and intellectually-challenging projects. We apply our economic toolkit to help clients solve complex problems. Our analysis may also be complex, but we provide clear and honest advice to clients using plain language. All of our employees own a share of the company so we all have a say in how it is run. Come and join a unique place to work, where your career is in your hands. We solve some of the most interesting problems in economics. To do that successfully means looking beyond the obvious, delivering thorough and refreshingly clear advice with intelligence and sensitivity.
It’s the unique way we are owned and run by the people who work here that makes us different. Everyone is encouraged to contribute their ideas. All employees have the opportunity to say how things should be run and how we can put those ideas into practice. If you think you’d be good at planning an event, do it. Maybe you think you’d be a good trainer – go for it. Working at Frontier is as much about being open as it is about being smart. Curiosity and open-mindedness is as valuable as in-depth knowledge.
