Economic and Financial Consulting

What we do

The Economic and Financial Consulting practice work on a wide variety of assignments that address challenging business issues – solving problems and providing advice by drawing on the disciplines of economics, finance, valuation and accountancy.

Issues frequently addressed include the measurement, assessment and forecasting of economic performance; the financial analysis and valuation of direct and indirect interests in businesses; intellectual property rights and complex financial instruments; the pricing of goods, services and financial instruments in markets, and the effect of incentives on behaviour.

Some of our recent projects include:

  • Calculating commercial damages for an airline carrier following a competitor’s anti-competitive practices
  • Valuing complex financial derivatives from the fallout of the financial crisis
  • Calculating the fair value of a Baltic country’s imported energy

What will you do?

Example Project- The effect of changes in the market price for gas:

  • We were engaged by a major gas company that had entered into arbitration with an upstream supplier, alleging that the contract price for gas was unfair as a result of the reduction in the open market spot price.
  • We calculated their loss as a result of being held to that contract by comparing the actual situation with a counterfactual scenario. We also analysed the way gas is bought and sold across European gas markets.
