Valuation and economics

We help you understand what your business, shares or assets are worth in the context of your transactions, strategic decision making, financial reporting, dispute, tax planning or group restructure.

To get an understanding of the value of an asset or business and what is really driving that value, you need experienced and dedicated valuation specialists and industry experts.

By approaching problems from both commercial and technical aspects, you’ll get independent valuation advice that provides new insights alongside fulfilling an important corporate governance role.

We help make our clients successful by providing independent valuations and fairness opinions in respect of business interests, and by providing financial and economic analysis for individuals, companies and their counsel involved in litigation, arbitration and mediation.

Our business modelling services help you take a more dedicated approach to decision making.

How we can add value

We bring together professionals with extensive valuation, technical accounting, corporate finance, tax, strategy, financial modelling, and deep industry experience, in order to offer you an integrated approach to help measure, analyse and report on a broad range of valuation issues.
