Silk Road Associates is a strategy consultancy helping clients grow their commercial footprint across the fast growing Silk Road economies with a specific focus on China, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.
We provide a range of services from business strategy, market studies, to operational support. Our senior directors include economists, business strategists, and operational specialists, all having excelled in their respective fields. Our clients are present in a variety of industries and include multinationals, mid-sized companies, and financial institutions.
Led by Ben Simpfendorfer, a former chief China economist and specialist in ties between Asia and the Middle East, we understand the challenges of operating across multiple countries and within an increasingly interconnected region. And with offices in Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Melbourne, we also provide insightful local knowledge on the region.
We work alongside senior executive teams, assisting in the development of business strategies, providing independent advice on risks and opportunities, and supporting partner identification and deal-closing.
We work on a retainer or project basis for clients, providing deep insights into the region’s hottest economic and sectoral issues, relying on a mixture of data analysis, field research, and our specialist relationships.
