Governments, regulators and international agencies
We help governments and international organizations to create the policies, markets and regulatory frameworks that enable the finance and efficient provision of infrastructure and social services.
Our wealth of international experience enables us to identify the gaps and bottlenecks that impede finance and service delivery. Using economic theory and lessons from global practice we help public sector clients to chart new courses. We work with our clients to develop master plans, investment pipelines, and new financing structures, often blending public and private finance. Our fact-based analysis and carefully thought-out approach to stakeholder consultation enable us to build consensus on what reform to implement and which projects to develop. We ensure value for money in public expenditure through cost-benefit analysis, feasibility studies, and assessment of alternative finance and delivery options for projects. Where private finance and delivery is appropriate, we structure and manage transactions to bring in the best private partner. We assist regulators in setting tariffs and service standards, and in crafting pro-competitive access regimes. We provide governments with the frameworks they need to manage fiscal risk in infrastructure, and to maximize the finance available for development of essential services.
