Drawing on our extensive network, time in market and primary research, we provide global investors with timely, accurate and meaningful insights. Our clients include GPs and LPs ranging from global and regional private equity funds to family offices and sovereign wealth, endowment, pension and infrastructure funds.
Our macro advisory services support clients monitoring, anticipating and adapting to global political events and trends. Country or thematic risk assessments and scenario development help clients judge and balance portfolio risk exposures and respond to immediate challenges or opportunities. Our work is informed by detailed on the ground insights combined with best in class analysis and research.
Our political due diligence service works with vendors, acquirers and lenders to evaluate the ways in which politics, policy and regulation shape an asset’s value. This can include transaction-based political due diligence to inform bid/offer pricing and strategy or portfolio-level reviews to stress test holdings against political, policy or regulatory change.
Our strategic advisory services integrate our macro view directly and concretely into a client’s strategic planning for key events such as mergers and acquisitions, market entries and major strategy changes. Executive briefings providing succinct and actionable insights for senior business and risk managers, with ongoing support in implementation.
Our ESG advisory services include transaction and portfolio-level ESG due diligence, as well as guidance and operational support for GPs, LPs and portfolio companies seeking to navigate rapidly changing ESG policy frameworks globally. Our work in this area has included everything from helping GP’s achieve UNPRI signatory compliance to reworking portfolio company supply chains to mitigate carbon risk.
