Kleiman International emphasizes a personalized and flexible approach in all client work and every client deals directly with one or both of the firm’s principals. The quality of the group’s independent research and advisory services is maintained through a small group of in-house professionals; a worldwide network of specialized consultants is kept on roster to be used as needed. Basic market, economic, and financial information is provided by public and private sector sources in each country with whom the firm maintains ongoing informal relations and partnerships, but final, original recommendations are delivered as an exclusive judgment to meet clients’ specific requests.
