GBRW was established in London in 1995 by a group of senior commercial and investment bankers. GBRW's aim has always been to provide emerging market clients with the same standard of high quality, specialised consulting on financial services and enterprise development, as would be expected in developed markets.

Furthermore, we want to connect the banking, government, investment, and economic development sectors with industry best-practice, and to help develop and implement practical interventions and outcomes for emerging markets.

The GBRW management team is composed entirely of senior consulting and training professionals with a background as commercial, investment, or development bankers with an average of more than 25 years' professional experience.

Our London headquarters is based in the heart of the City of London, and operate through subsidiary offices in the US and Asia.
