About Monfort Advisory

The Israeli market is developing rapidly, offering new and exciting opportunities. Yet the complex nature of this market may create challenges and uncertainty for foreign companies in the process of making significant business decisions.

Monfort Advisory has worked with clients across a diverse array of sectors, including law firms, financial institutions, corporate intelligence companies, private corporations, and international NGOs.

Monfort Advisory has been helping clients navigate and make sense of the Israeli market since 2017. We are well integrated into the business circles in Israel; we know it inside and out; and we have access to the people, the data and the expertise that our clients want and need.


Our commitments:

Achieving results

We are result-oriented; when our clients tell us what they want to gain, we help them identify the kind of information they need in order to base a business decision – and then we find this information for them.

Being transparent and ethical

Our goal is to make the Israeli market transparent and accessible for our clients, without compromising on our values. We strive to act with full transparency and accountability in everything we do and everyone we engage with, first and foremost – our clients.
