Glenfield is an international partnership of academia and practical expertise, built upon decades of outstanding achievements in the areas of finance, management and executive education. Our work is organised around three pillars of service – areas of expertise and excellence: Financial Management, Business Strategy, Organisation and Processes, and Internal Capacity Building. Through innovative financial and management platforms we provide bespoke solutions for complex programmes to governments, ministries, funds, investors and final beneficiaries such as financial institutions and companies, but we also support startups and re-starters through adjusted, basic but highly professional services, accompanied by unique customer experience. We are based in Belgrade, Serbia, but our outreach is global.

Our Differentiating Value Proposition
We recognized a need to do business differently. Firstly, in the way we conduct business – ‘’the way we work together’. We believe in true partnership, which means we are guided by the values of mutual respect, integrity, trust, transparency, responsibility and excellence and fully accept our responsibility to bring forward value-adding, best practice solutions tailored to the exact needs of the client at hand. The second aspect of differentiation is the quality of the team we bring to our clients. Our team consists of vastly experienced business practitioners, like minded and motivated, each an expert in different aspects of business management. Together we bring an unrivaled blend of expertise, perspective, experience and insight. We are united by a shared belief in the Glenfield vision, business model and the values that define and differentiate the Glenfield value-proposition in the marketplace. What you get: real, tangible, long-term, bottom-line benefits.

While working closely with enterprises of different sizes, shapes and activities across the world, over the past decades, we have witnessed the creation, development but also demise of many. We have seen businesses fail, opportunities missed, and chances offered but not taken… Many of these failed because they lacked fundamental business management skills, while the others failed to see the changes happening, or failed to build the resilience to face the ever changing environment. Our mission addresses exactly these shortcomings and we provide the solution.
