Project Evaluation

Making decisions about project structure, contract design and the financial framework can be challenging. CRI personnel help investors make successful choices by identifying critical variables in each project, and then applying modern techniques of financial modelling, applied economic analysis, risk analysis and risk management.

Financial Analysis allows us to model the financial viability of the project, including what-if scenarios and alternative methods of financing.

Economic Analysis quantifies the costs and benefits to the economy, including environmental impacts. Understanding the impact of macroeconomic and policy changes is vital to your project’s sustainability.

Contract Structure and Stakeholder Analysis is where we measure the outcomes for project sponsors, government, consumers, and other stakeholders. This enables us to design contracts that meet the needs of negotiating parties.

Risk Analysis helps us identify the sources of project risk, and design appropriate risk management strategies.

In market that is increasingly unpredictable and complex, this integrated approach is widely becoming the international standard.
