We believe that rigorous economics combined with strong strategic advice can generate new, innovative insights for the world’s most pressing socioeconomic challenges.
Access Partnership’s Economics Strategy team (previously AlphaBeta) works with our clients to tackle wide-ranging economic, social, and environmental challenges, from automation and financial inclusion to digital transformation and biodiversity loss. Through a combination of academic rigour and commercial relevance, we strive to create economic models to underpin a world that should exist today but doesn’t, to provide clear goalposts for a fair and sustainable global economy.
We partner extensively with the world’s leading tech companies, conglomerates, governments, investors, international organisations, civil society organisations, and philanthropies to design and advance evidence-based interventions to tackle these challenges. Our clients rely on our pragmatic, independent, and ethical analyses to understand the socioeconomic forces affecting their markets.
The tools we use combine the skills of our talented economists and experienced consultants, and span economic contribution and socioeconomic impact analyses, cost-benefit analysis, data analytics and econometrics, demand forecasting and scenario modelling, policy design, advisory and advocacy, corporate advisory, and multistakeholder engagement.
We help you by:
- Identifying critical risks posed by rapid socioeconomic changes such as digital transformation and climate change.
- Quantifying the impact of inaction or decisions made in absence of rigorous data to provide decision-makers with the evidence they need to embrace change.
- Understanding and quantifying the opportunities created by “just”, systemic transitions that maximize social, economic, and environmental benefits for all stakeholders.
- Outlining business and policy interventions needed to mitigate these risks effectively and unlock these opportunities efficiently, in line with organisational and global goals for sustainable economic development.
