Who We Are

BFA Global is a consulting firm that works at the frontiers of finance, data, and technology to empower people to be agents of their own future, building inclusive and competitive economies for a more sustainable and equitable world.

Alongside partners and clients, we drive proactive responses to some of the world’s most pressing challenges including effective and sustainable development, poverty reduction, achieving fulfilling employment in the age of automation, bridging digital divides, developing participatory and evidence-informed governance, and mitigating the migratory and climate crises.

We leverage applied research and innovation via our own knowledge, skills, and experience. We harness data science, economic analyses, financial tools, artificial intelligence, human-centered design, and lean product development, crafting efficient solutions that enable individuals, organizations, and communities to address vulnerabilities and prosper.

Founded in 2006, BFA Global is headquartered in Boston and Nairobi with additional offices in Medellín and New Delhi. We have presences in Johannesburg, Lagos, Madrid, Mexico City, and Paris.

BFA Global always was, and still is, intended to be a platform for good work. While the precise nature of the work has evolved over the years, the essence has not: good work is work which leads to positive outcomes for our clients and wider society, and to fair financial rewards and growth for our people.
