Business consulting & transaction advice

Positioned at the interface of the public and private sectors, major infrastructure and operational projects provide opportunities worldwide for investors and lenders alike. It represents a worldwide market of billions of dollars every year that continues to grow.

Project sponsors, investors and lenders need to understand their current assets and operations as well as these new investment opportunities. What revenues can be generated? What are the costs involved with construction and operation? How material are the technical, economic, commercial and political and regulatory risks around the project? 

Drawing on the knowledge and experience developed by the company over 40 years, we provide expert support to this decision-making. We offer robust and appropriate analysis, experienced insight and judgement to offer insightful support to the buyer, seller or operator.

From strategic assessment of markets to detailed forecasting of demand, revenue and costs we can support the creation, test and challenge of investment cases. By pricing analysis, competitive assessment, benchmarking, sensitivity analyses and scenario planning we help to optimise decision making for both existing assets and operations as well as new investment opportunities.

More than a management consultancy applying process techniques our experience of transactions and our outward and internationally minded consultants bring their technical appreciation to bear alongside considered best-practice investigation and analytical processes.
