In an increasingly complex and uncertain world, it is not enough to simply rely on intuition when making decisions or challenging assumptions. We help our clients understand what their business or shares are worth, the key drivers that influence value and the how to enhance the outcomes of transactions or investment projects.  We partner with clients on their significant investment decisions, including quantification of the impact of physical and transition risks and opportunities in moving to a low carbon economy.

We help business owners, CEOs, CFOs and Boards navigate an increasingly complex and regulated environment, including the requirements of financial reporting standards, impairment processes arising during an audit, the Climate Standard (CS-1), assistance with step acquisitions, purchase price allocation and cost of capital advice required to support key investment decisions. We also undertake valuations of complex securities (options, convertible notes, hybrid securities) and the valuation of stock options and performance share rights under IFRS -2.

Underpinning all our advice is a commitment to robust financial modelling and transparency to ensure conclusions that are both logical and easy to follow.
