The Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI) is a leading provider of economic consultancy services. We have a diverse client base from across the public, private and third sectors.
Engagement with the FAI gives clients a unique insight into the Scottish, UK and global economies and their role within it.
The Fraser of Allander Institute has been analysing and providing a commentary on the Scottish economy since 1975.
Alongside our Economic Commentary publication, we provide bespoke insight and forecasting services for clients who value private advice and support tailored to their needs.
This can involve a detailed study of developments in individual industrial sectors or across particular local authorities or regions.
We also support organisations in understanding the ever-changing policy and constitutional landscape that they operate in, putting them in a strong position to make – or influence – good decision making.
Business Strategy and Market Analysis
As an independent institute within a world-class Business School, we can draw on a wide portfolio of expertise to provide academically-informed and evidence-based economic advice across a wide range of business and market strategy topics.
Areas of expertise include:
- Competition issues, such as mergers, anti-trust and representation during market investigations
- Market analysis
- The latest techniques to evaluate policies and programmes
- Regulation issues for public utilities including energy, water, transport and telecommunications;
- Understanding the behaviour of consumers and strategies for market success
The team in the Fraser is often asked to present at conferences, seminars and to individual organisations.
We can provide formal presentations to large audiences or ad hoc sessions to a smaller number of executives.
