Energy, Utilities, Mining and Infrastructure

Making informed investment and strategy decisions

The pace of change in some of the world’s most traditional industries is accelerating. Globalisation, technological change, environmental regulation and new sources of capital are just some of the factors that are changing the face of capital asset industries and their supply chains at a rate that is uncomfortable to many industry players.

In sectors where asset lifecycles are typically measured in decades, these changes are making it harder to make decisions about where to focus or invest. Investment cases now contain more variables and greater uncertainty than before, and corporate strategies involve making judgements about the shape of the future, as well as specific decisions about where to focus, and what not to do. And where investments involve third party providers of debt or equity, how can they get comfortable with this higher level of commercial risk?
