Aligning strategy and execution with business objectives to ensure that clients have the right properties in the right place, with the correct level of financial flexibility and cost control.
A market leading team that comprises accountants, financial modellers and corporate financiers. We advise occupiers on the most efficient way to finance the occupation of their real estate. To do this, we first understand the occupier’s objectives and consider the range of options that are available. We evaluate each option’s pros and cons and conduct detailed financial analysis looking at the occupier’s Weighted Average Cost of Capital, and the effect that the different forms of occupation have on the occupier’s Profit and Loss account, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement. The result is always evaluated against the occupiers objectives stated at the outset.
Being in the most appropriate location for any occupier can have an overriding impact success of a business achieving its objectives. Our location consulting team work in partnership with clients to assess their location requirements, whether consolidating, relocating or expanding, and by using rigorous analytical techniques, provide a clear insight on the most suitable locations for the respective business or operation. Our analysis focuses on cost, non-economic and risk factors to provide a thorough objective assessment of alternative locations and to ensure that the right location decision is made for each client.
