Despite the vast array of requirements that exist in different sectors and between different types of stakeholders, there is a common desire for the improved transparency and efficacy of regulatory finance. Our experts work closely with clients to understand their specific needs or the challenges they face and offer solutions that are not only acceptable but offer improved outcomes for either the requestor or the provider of financial information.
A key and often contentious issue in regulatory determinations is the allowed return, often determined with reference to an estimate of the weighted average cost of capital. We have a track record of advising regulators, governments, and regulated companies about the cost of capital in all infrastructure and related sectors across the world. We also have deep experience of advising on related matters including the use of Equity Value (EV)/Regulated Asset Base (RAB) multiples, financeability, the treatment of inflation, as well as financial modelling to support our analysis in all these areas.
