As a boutique firm, our focus is on the advertising, digital and media space in China and Southeast Asia. So, although we can also work as a generalist advisory firm, we deliver more value working for say, a satellite broadcasting operator, than let’s say, an automobile manufacturer.
And because we are sector focus, we are able to undertake a broad range of work within the advertising, digital and media space. Indeed, we sometimes discuss and customize the scope of our assignment with the client to meet very specific needs e.g. one of our clients required us to assess the credibility and suitability of a potential joint venture partner in Shanghai.
To give you a sense of the breadth (and depth) of what we can do, we have set out brief descriptions of some assignments that we have undertaken in the past (names of clients withheld). As you will see, these highlighted assignments are quite diverse, both in terms of scope of work as well as across different segments within the advertising, digital and media space.
