Economic and Financial
Our typical economic assignments involve:
- Defining and refining competitive advantage for cities or regions
- Planning the industrial pillars for large area developments
- Examining trends in population, incomes, employment bases and housing
- Creating area wide demand models for housing or retail analysis
- Supporting comprehensive planning efforts or new zoning codes
While our financial analysis engagements are largely focused on:
- Building bespoke excel-based financial models for new investments or real estate developments (both at the corporate and project levels)
- Creating targeted ad hoc financial models for management decision making, such as market entry planning or company reorganizations
Money moves the world, for better or worse. Businesses, cities, and non-profits are therefore always trying to quantify or improve their competitive positions to capture and retain more of what makes them successful.
The problem, in many cases, is that traditional economists tend to be operate in a theoretical bubble and few finance types want to get involved in the policy side of economics.
So how do you find a team who is comfortable with the range of issues relevant to economic policy analysis as well as excel-savvy enough to build incredibly sophisticated financial models?
