| Organizational purpose

We unleash the power of purpose – the why driving what you do – to transform your productivity and profitability.

Defining your business purpose is not a creative-writing exercise.

Senior leaders cannot craft your organizational purpose at a meeting or purchase it from an agency. We know this because, for a quarter of a century, companies have been turning to us when such efforts fail to deliver better performance.

| Business strategy

Uncertainty is accelerating while the half-life of leadership positions and business models is shortening. Winning in this environment takes two things: strategic insights into how the world is likely to change – and the ability to create value from those insights before the game changes again.

Leaders need to answer critical questions:

    • How will changes in technology, regulation, and geopolitics affect business economics, customer priorities, competitive advantage, and the universe of possible strategic moves?
    • Where, and with which business models, do we have the greatest right to win in the future?
    • What is our value creation ambition and agenda?
    • What is the best way to allocate capital – within the business portfolio, to transactions, and to shareholder payouts – to realize that ambition and build the strongest business possible?
  • Are our strategy and finance functions world class and able to sustain superior performance well into the future?

| Business transformation

„Always-on“ business transformation is essential for surviving in today’s rapidly changing environment. To stay ahead, companies must transform even when they’re already dominating their markets. 85% of business transformation programs fail, largely because most companies lack a disciplined approach.

We help clients beat the odds.

We bring strategy, leadership, actions, and sustainable results for your transformation.

| Performance improvement

Business outcomes are consistently measured across all industries and have been for decades. The people, profit and loss statement, balance sheet and cash flow statements consistently capture the financial health and sustaining power of the business spanning across companies and industries.

We help improve performance – along four dimensions.

| Mergers & Acquisitions

We bring our clients deep expertise in transaction and integration services with deep industry knowledge, and global expertise in more than 10 markets and collective experience of more than 100 years to deliver and sustain M&A programs.

| Financial Advisory

We cover a full range of traditional and innovative financial services and, whether dealing with transactions or acting as advisors, we offer our clients both in-depth knowledge and a strategic view on the matter at hand.

When it comes to handling global and cross-border projects, Aureola’s independence is a decisive factor. Not being confined to a formal network of international partners, we are in a position to hand-pick reputed financial institutions, local lawyers whose expertise precisely fits the client’s needs – and who respect our commitment to absolute transparency, discretion and tight controls on fees and costs.

Our clients include

  • Banks
  • Brokers
  • Sovereign and Private Equity Funds


Many of today’s business organizations are vexed by internal complexity — a proliferation of cumbersome structures, processes, and systems. Our approach helps companies manage the ever-increasing complexity that stifles an organization’s performance and growth. Our delayering and zero-based budgeting approaches also support large-scale transformation and organization change by freeing up resources to drive growth and innovation.

supply chain, manufacturing & working capital

Businesses today are under pressure to do more with less. Leading companies are confronting these challenges by launching aggressive new programs to modernize their supply chains, improve manufacturing efficiency and speed up product development.

Asset optimization
offices & factories

With the onset of COVID and the post-COVID world, businesses must decide not only in which locations their offices, plants and distribution centers reside but also how they’re optimized for topics such as new work policies, regulations, logistics, taxes and duties. We help clients make the best decisions by analyzing new and future demand models, cost drivers in shipping and logistic costs, and manufacturing and supply requirements.

strategic sourcing

Our procurement experts know best how to help teams chart a course to improving how they buy. They blend deep sector-specific knowledge with expertise in procurement best practices across both traditional and digital transformation.

| Our purpose

To help create sustainable positive impact in the world.

Do you want to create a brighter future with an engaged, connected and happy organization? We can help.

“Our ethos is to help companies on their journey to transform performance for all stakeholders making our planet more sustainable and improving the lives of generations to come.”

| Our mission

To help clients create sustainable positive shifts in business performance.

Aiming for greatness requires one to focus on the essentials from the perspective of all stakeholders. Making change happen from within rather than an army of external consultants.

The obsession for quality is often inconvenient but non-negotiable. Change without a focus on quality is an illusion and results in under-performance. The good news is that it comes at no extra cost, rather a business benefit in the long run.

Transformation requires strong leadership – far more than one hero. A well-connected change coalition made up of leaders, managers and influencers across the company is fundamental.

Bold shifts call for clarity and focus.
