WHAT WE DO FOR YOU

WE PROVIDE STRATEGY AND TRANSACTION ADVICE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE LIFE-CYCLE OF INFRASTRUCTURE & ENERGY PROJECTS

FROM DEVELOPING PPP POLICY FRAMEWORKS AND OPTIMISING PROCUREMENT AND CONTRACTING STRATEGIES FOR PUBLIC, PRIVATE OR PPP PROJECTS TO STRUCTURING AND CLOSING COMPLEX TRANSACTIONS

WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE

HAVING REPRESENTED THE INTEREST OF GOVERNMENTS AS WELL AS PRIVATE SECTOR DEVELOPERS/INVESTORS AND LENDERS IN NUMEROUS TRANSACTIONS, WE CAN ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF BOTH, FRAMEWORKS AND TRANSACTIONS, FROM MULTIPLE ANGLES, ENSURING A SUCCESSFUL OUTCOME.

Global Experience

We know international best practice and which elements of transactions or frameworks are transferable to local markets  - and which are not.

We also understand the unique dynamics of individual markets and that project/PPP frameworks or transactions can’t be a
copy & paste from other parts of the world.

Innovative Ideas

As market participants are adapting to
new technologies and regulations, traditional project/PPP models need to cope with their stakeholders’ changing behaviour and goals.

We have successfully developed and executed multiple first-of-its-kind solutions for projects in various industry sectors.

Bespoke Solutions

We focus on our clients’ individual goals and needs and know that a solution that works perfectly for one client may be suboptimal or worse for another client.

We therefore ensure to identify all options and solutions available to our clients and to assess their relative benefits and risks against the client’s priority objectives.

it is extremely important that we understand or define
your objectives first

HOW WE WORK

WHAT WE HAVE DONE

“The only source of
knowledge is experience.”


Albert Einstein

We have hands-on experience on practically all sides of transactions, having presented the interest of governments as well as of developers/investors or senior lenders. This way we have gained a critical understanding of how the market and other stakeholders will respond to our client’s requirements.

We have been involved in all stages of transactions, from the development of policies to the analysis of potential project structures up to the execution and operation of projects.

We have experienced project failures as well as success and have this way gained invaluable insights in what does work and what does not.

We understand the unique requirement of the industry sectors we work in.

WE HAVE NOT ONLY SEEN IT, WE HAVE DONE IT
