The right industry insights

When you’re about to invest, you want to remove as much uncertainty from the equation as possible.

Most clients who come to us are experienced financiers. But familiarity with financial instruments is little help when you’re investing in engineering projects in the upstream energy sector. 

The operators and integrators running the project are probably telling you everything is a surefire success. But how can you be sure? We cut our teeth in the oil and gas industry but now serve a variety of clients from geothermal or biomass energy production to offshore wind farms and beyond. The common denominator is a major engineering component, large risks—and heavy reputational fallout when projects fail.

Through our due diligence and appraisal services we dive deep into specific aspects or phases of your project. We not only educate you on the dynamics of the sector, we lay out the unique risks associated with your specific project, giving you the confidence to make a truly informed decision. 

You’re in good company

When banks such as JP Morgan Chase, Barclays Investment Bank and HSBC—and private equity advisory firms such as Morgan Stanley and AMA Capital—need energy industry insights that can help mitigate risk on their portfolios, they call us.
