Focus Business Strategy
STRATEC advises company managers, of both regulated and unregulated enterprises, on strategies that help to add value to their business. They must decide whether and how to enter into new markets and to make new investments (including mergers and acquisitions), how to respond to various forms of economic regulation, how to set prices and tariffs, and how to design and negotiate major new contracts. All decisions of this kind require an economic analysis of the relevant, and of the costs and risks under different options.
STRATEC helps clients to shape business strategies by anticipating the evolution of regulation and competition, and by measuring the impact of likely developments on the profitability of the company and on investment plans.
