What we do
We add value to businesses through a range of core services:
INVESTMENT & FINANCIAL ADVICE
Sound and profitable investments are vital for a solid and sustainable business, yet knowing where and when to invest is not easy. Our investment experts will guide you through all the options available and recommend the opportunities that are best for your business. We help companies understand the real value of their offering through various evaluation methods including development of financial models and financial planning tools.
STRATEGY AND TRANSFROMATION
We provide support and advice that helps you create and manage change programs. We can also recruit and manage external consultants who have the knowledge you need to succeed in specialized sectors. Our business experts will look at your existing strategy and business model and advise on what you are doing right, and what you are doing wrong, before putting forward detailed proposals on how to effect positive change and drive your business forward.
Middle managers often lack the requisite skills to motivate staff and drive through change. Our business coaches will inject dynamism into your organization by introducing new ideas to your management team and encouraging personal development.
We provide consultancy support for Saudi entrepreneurs, established owner managers and Saudi family companies – to build and grow great sustainable businesses – making the right choices to create the business, legacy and lifestyle they want. In addition we deliver consultancy advice for government, investors and incubators to progress the SME Agenda in Saudi Arabia.

Working with UCG
BUSINESS PARTNERS Our approach is fresh and interesting, yet our style is practical, helping people to get involved, learn new skills, take action and deliver results. We do consultancy to initially understand the business context, develop the strategy, create the plans and articulate the Investor story. Then unlike many consultancies we stay around using our business performance coaching team to get the implementation right with you.
LOCAL DUAL PERSPECTIVE Our team are predominantly talented experienced Saudi locals who together get what it will take to balance wants and needs.
GLOBAL TWIST We also deploy international expertise that we either already have within our team network or we can bring into the team for you – so that you get one team supporting you.
FRESH THINKING There will be no shortage of ideas – this is all about delivering them – so that is where our creative emphasis will be – delivering viable and sustainable solutions plus some quick wins to grow the business building value as we go forward.
PRACTICAL, VALUE ADDED SUSTAINABLE ACTIONS Our approach through working with business coaches is all about seeking to build solutions that are sustainable with you and consistently keep you taking action. You want strategies that add business value, systems that work and skill building that lets you keep it in house – so that is our focus.
