Meet Fraser

Fraser is passionate about using economics to help address major societal challenges, with a particular focus on sustainability, the future of work, and accelerating economic development.

Fraser founded AlphaBeta in 2015 to marry academic rigour with commercial relevance to help solve the world’s most pressing issues. Prior to AlphaBeta, Fraser was a consultant at McKinsey & Company for almost nine years, working with a range of governments and leading corporates in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, the United States, and Indonesia. During this time, Fraser was a Senior Fellow at McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), McKinsey’s business and economics research arm, where he led work on themes such as productivity and growth, resource efficiency, climate change, foreign investment attraction, economic development in resource-rich countries, and obesity. Before McKinsey, Fraser worked as a consultant at the World Bank and the Boston Consulting Group and was also a lecturer of economics at Oxford University.

Fraser received a Doctorate and master’s in economics from the University of Oxford, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
