Strategy and Investment Facilitation

We help public and private sector stakeholders navigate the changing world by recognizing opportunity, clarifying vision, creating strategies, implementing action, and measuring results. Leveraging our industry knowledge and networks, we design strategies that help clients succeed in complex emerging markets. Read case studies highlighting our competencies here. 

Our team has managed $900 million in debt and equity across the Global South, and has vast experience in investment facilitation, portfolio management, monitoring, performance measurement and analysis to inform strategic decisions and overall portfolio performance.



Policy Advisory

We offer strategic advice to the public and private sector across emerging markets to build partnerships in the Global South that accelerate private sector development. As Asia, Latin America, and Africa increase their share of global growth, we help governments and businesses navigate ever-changing economic, policy and regulatory environments.

Our tailored expert analysis enables our clients to engage more effectively with key stakeholders, and identify international policy tools that support strategic priorities.




Botho provides cutting edge research on sectoral and regional developments across emerging markets. Working on behalf of major international development organizations, governments as well as global and local business leaders, we undertake complex surveys, provide nuanced qualitative research, monitoring and evaluation as well as market insights.

Our multi-layered approach for examining business, culture, and politics generates fresh insights leading to smarter frameworks of decision and action. Botho is home to the Sino-Africa Centre for Excellence, a leading destination for China-Africa policy and research.
