While business believes that this government is committed to increasing the delivery of public services through the private sector, there is uncertainty about how soon these opportunities will flow.
This is compounded by differing political agendas and priorities. The scale of policy changes and the radical timelines across all sectors is causing concern for private sector providers. Alongside a continuing uncertain economic backdrop, public sector projects and spending being reduced, contracts being renegotiated and pipelines diminishing, the private sector is wondering when to invest in gearing up for the new world where the government enables rather than does.
Drawing on our strong understanding of the public sector gives us an informed insight into the complex range of issues facing the public and private sector alike. We align ourselves to the key agendas including deficit reduction, contracting with government, the low carbon agenda and localism, to provide our private sector clients with advice that works with the direction of public policy.
We create funding structures that enable the private sector to bring their resources to bear in working with the public sector to meet their delivery agenda, at a time when public sector budgets are limited.
Our areas of focus are:
- real estate and asset management
- infrastructure finance for major capital projects and programmes
- energy generation and energy efficiency projects
- outsourcing and new models of service delivery
- place-based analysis of socio-economic and environmental factors
We have a strong track record in developing successful partnerships with the public sector, that reflect our deep understanding of finance and financial markets. We are consistently in the top 3 of public private partnership finance league tables and our clients include all the top ten infrastructure contractors.
We work with and support infrastructure funds, developers, major contractors, transport operators and major equipment manufacturers on a range of infrastructure projects across many sectors, helping to support the country’s regeneration and economic development goals.
