Our value proposition
Stratum offers top tier advisory services from an experienced team that is aligned with its clients’ interests
Our clients choose us when
what matters most is:
  • To be clear

    We prioritize the highest levels of clarity in how we think and communicate. While we practice a structured approach to problem solving that can be deeply quantitative when such rigor is required, our prime concern is to be logical, lucid, and accessible.
  • To be critical

    We are unafraid of starting with a blank sheet of paper. In fact, we thrive on it. Our firm specializes in situations when critical thinking and resourcefulness are more important than scale, benchmarking, or looking backwards. We look forward.
  • To have context

    As we proactively leverage our international relationships and credentials in order to deliver value to our clients, we aim to ensure that the partnerships that we help forge are rooted in our understanding of the MENA region and its unique requirements.
