Our Vision

Since the establishment of Windsor Place Consulting in July 2000, the company has been primarily focussed on meeting client needs in Australian and Asian markets.   In conjunction with our strategic partners, our vision at Windsor Place Consulting is to provide access to the latest industry thinking and practice, customised to the specific country circumstances for our Australian, Asian and African clients.   In addition to our unique knowledge of regional conditions, the firm's strategic outlook includes a strong focus on developments in European Union and North American markets in order to allow us to provide an even better global view of the industry and regulation.

At Windsor Place Consulting, we believe that our clients achieve the best outcomes from an exclusive, longer-term relationship with our core team of principal advisors.   Not only does this facilitate a high degree of trust and mutual interaction with our clients, it enables us to share valuable skillsets and methodologies and implement turnkey policy solutions.
