Genesis Analytics was one of the first economics-based consulting firms to be established in Africa and has since grown into the largest.

How do we unlock value?

We do this in many ways. For instance, we do it when we figure out the mobile entry strategy for a bank operating in a fast-growing market. When we provide a litigation-proof analytical foundation for a regulator wishing to reduce mobile-phone termination rates, saving low-income consumers hundreds of millions of dollars a year. We unlock value when we devise a horticulture strategy for a large East African country that can create 100 000 jobs. We unlock value when our analysis prompts the restructuring of a water scheme to serve thousands more households in more needy areas. These are just four examples drawn from our large archive of case studies.

Milestone in the history of Genesis Analytics

Genesis Analytics turned 20 in February. Stephan Malherbe founded the firm in February 1998 with a staff of two in a 59 square-metre office in the Johannesburg suburb of Blairgowrie. 

The firm was the first specialist microeconomics consultancy in South Africa and we have since expanded into eight practices,  employing more than 120 people in Africa.
