Investment Life Cycle Approach
Our Advisory team provides support throughout the whole investment lifecycle across three key stages:
- Initiation and investment assessment
Providing strategic advice in assessing projects, development of business strategies, investment plans and investment propositions.
- Transaction support
Providing Commercial, Technical and ESG due diligence services in transactions, refinancing and debt issuances.
- Asset optimization
Providing services to both corporates and investors related to the transition of existing assets to more sustainable/ESG solutions; as well as preparing these clients for upcoming climate/sustainability reporting requirements.
For Investment proposition and assessment, we provide strategic advice in assessing projects and developing business strategies, investment plans, and investment propositions. An investment assessment is a process of evaluating a proposed investment to determine whether it is a good fit for an investor's goals and risk tolerance. This involves analyzing the investment's potential returns, risks, and market conditions, as well as considering factors such as the investor's investment horizon and cash flow needs.
Transactional support includes providing commercial, technical, and ESG due diligence services in transactions (M&A), refinancing, and debt issuances. Due diligence is a comprehensive review of a target company to identify risks and liabilities that may impact the value of a proposed merger or acquisition. Through our rigorous due diligence process, we can also help clients identify opportunities for improvement and recommend strategies to mitigate risks and enhance the overall value of the investment.
Asset optimization is the third stage of our investment lifecycle services. Our asset optimization services help clients maximize the value of their existing assets while transitioning to a more sustainable business model. We provide support in identifying opportunities for energy efficiency improvements, implementing renewable energy solutions, and evaluating the potential for carbon offsetting. Additionally, we help our clients navigate the complex regulatory landscape related to climate and sustainability reporting, ensuring compliance with emerging standards and providing guidance on best practices. At WSP, we help clients optimize their assets while achieving their sustainability goals.
