Who We Are

BGA knows Asia’s leaders and we understand their goals. With our team, business objectives are achieved through our client-focused approach and unrivaled ground-based experts and networks.

We apply unmatched expertise and experience to help clients interpret the world’s most complex and dynamic markets, providing actionable intelligence to implement strategies, expand business, resolve problems and do good work in Asia. By good work, we mean finding paths that are good for people, the countries they live in and our clients’ businesses.

The BGA team combines top-level strategic input with on-the-ground granular support. BGA’s staff comprises over 160 experts located in 24 offices across the region including Washington, D.C.

BGA works across Southeast Asia (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam); Northeast Asia (China, Hong Kong, Japan, Mongolia, South Korea and Taiwan); South Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka); The Pacific (Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea); and the United States.

BGA’s clients are the world’s leading global enterprises across a variety of sectors who seek our support in understanding the political and economic trends impacting the business and investment client across Asia, as well as the trends of individual markets that are at play in the formulation of public policy, legislation and regulation. No one knows the people that make and influence decisions and the sentiment affecting those decisions like BGA’s teams on the ground across Asia.

Our company develops plans for our clients to capitalize on opportunities, overcome challenges and mitigate risks based on a deep understanding of Asia and its people and unique access to information and insights.

Working as an integrated part of our clients’ teams, BGA helps translate ideas into new investments, expanded markets and problems solved.

“What differentiates BGA is the quality, breadth and depth of our country-based experts who skillfully advise clients on 28 markets across the region. Our sole focus and center of gravity is Asia, our services span from high-level strategic guidance to granular in-country support.”
