Our Role

We deliver on our vision by supporting the Australian Government in making commercially astute decisions on nationally significant infrastructure projects and programs through the provision of independent, commercial and financial advisory services.

To achieve this our advisory teams provide a suite of services to our Australian Government clients. These services cover the full spectrum of infrastructure across the economy including energy, transport, utilities and social infrastructure. We provide services across all phases of a project or program’s lifecycle from program design, market sounding, business case development, project governance facilitation, financial and commercial risk analysis, assurance, procurement support, complex commercial negotiation, asset management and program delivery.

We work with our clients to support the Australian Government to operate as an informed and active investor, using our strategic investor principles as a guide:

  • for “others” to fund projects where possible and therefore eliminate or minimise the need for Commonwealth funding;
  • to bridge market failure and/or risks through public finance or returnable capital, allowing whole or partial recovery of Commonwealth’s funding in the future;
  • to use conditional grants to ensure both commercial and financial outcomes are delivered, even though a capital return may not be possible; or
  • for a combination of the above
