Flint identifies policy-driven opportunities for growth.
We identify opportunities for growth at all stages in the investment cycle, from origination due diligence, to 100 days planning, strategy reviews and through to exit. We show where and how changes in regulation, policy, funding and institutions (such as changes in management at regulators) could create growth opportunities and how companies and investors can leverage this, from stakeholder engagement to identifying bolt-on’s. We also help clients shape policy, public procurement and funding environments.
We map current and likely developments that could create growth and investment opportunities. We also assess how policies could be changed to create more commercial opportunities.
We map and prioritise potential opportunities over the short to long term and work with clients to determine what would be needed to realise these opportunities (e.g. economic analysis to persuade policy makers to change regulations or taxes, etc).
Public funding and taxation
Fiscal measures are significant drivers of commercial opportunity, from spending on infrastructure and health, to price caps, subsidies and tax breaks. We can map the likelihood and impact of change and recommend desired policy changes.
Public procurement opportunity
The public sector presents a large and growing market for private sector providers. We map opportunities and show how providers can best develop new markets or customer groups, building pipelines and profiles.
Many of our clients have innovative technologies and business models that challenge existing sectors. We help clients identify and make the case for policies that enable such innovation.
A late change to an incoming prudential regime resulted in a client’s international operations being brought in scope, meaning the client would be required to hold significant additional capital. The client needed support to consider the options and make a decision about how best to mitigate the impact of this.
