Our Finance work
Financial analysis and advice form an important part of our project work. It cuts across our different practice areas and is relevant to a wide variety of client issues. Our clients in this area include regulated entities, regulators, private and government investors and other corporate organisations.
Our capabilities here are wide ranging and include:
- estimating and interpreting the cost of capital in various contexts;
- providing advice on all elements of regulatory finance for both regulated utilities and regulators;
- financial modelling;
- performing profitability assessments;
- due diligence analysis in relation to corporate transactions; and
- estimating damages and performing other financial analysis in legal disputes.
We have staff with specialist accounting and corporate finance skills and extensive experience in many industries and across a wide range of countries. While we often rely on advanced techniques, our work is always focused on how best to practically apply these techniques to real commercial issues.
