Origination

Flint helps investors identify assets or sectors where political or regulatory change will provide commercial tailwinds or incentivise sales.

Flint analyses the current and upcoming policy and regulatory developments that will determine the risks and opportunities for prospective areas of investment. This can determine attractive sectors and assets for future investment. We also assess how policy and political factors may affect the desire to sell. This can support off-market sales. For example, of companies that are not meeting their potential value due to their ownership structure.

Flint’s approach

We take a systematic approach to origination. We build an investment thesis for a sector or set of assets. We support this with analysis and, where appropriate, interviews. We work with clients to develop this into specific targets for acquisition or investment.

Sector analysis
Flint can assess the political and policy head and tailwinds facing a sector to help determine future commercial performance. This supports investor decisions.
Fund strategies
We support investors launching funds to help target their investments at countries, sectors or technologies which will provide value. For example, helping assess future government support for specific renewables.
Identifying assets
Using our assessment of political and regulatory tailwinds, we identify specific assets that will benefit from them and also meet clients' commercial criteria for investment.

The client needed support to consider the options and make a decision about how best to mitigate the impact of this.
