Welcome to ERA

Executive Research Associates is one of Africa’s leading socio-economic, political and security risk research and consultancy firms. Established in 1992, ERA assists multinational organisations venturing into Africa by providing them with the information they need to make strategic business decisions.

Because such information is seldom available in the public domain, ERA’s team of experts is well placed to bridge this gap. Over the course of two decades ERA has built up an extensive network of contacts with unique access to insider information, thereby affording deeper insight into issues of cardinal importance to clients. This information, which encompasses socio-economic, security, labour and political factors, is comprehensive, insightful and, most importantly, confidential – allowing ERA to delve deep into country-specific issues.

ERA clients range from parastatals to multinational corporations in gas and oil, retail, telecommunications and mining to foreign governmental trade organisations.
