The economic and social upheaval caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has created a period of deep uncertainty for both public and private sector organizations who are seeking to invest in our infrastructure and cities. Decision-makers are having to navigate both the short-term impacts of dramatically altered demand and lower economic activity whilst also trying to predict the lasting impact on how we will continue to use infrastructure and our cities in a post-pandemic world.
At Steer, having a detailed appreciation of specific markets, technologies and assets and, more importantly, having witnessed the impacts and recoveries from previous economic shocks and periods of change, we aim to provide an objective assessment to our clients so that they can improve decision-making, manage risk, and build resilience in search for the inevitable investment opportunities that always arise from periods of significant change.
Our 25+ years of transactions and deals advice has spanned projects, clients, geographies and numerous historical shock events, for which we combine our local knowledge with global best practice to create tailored advice for our clients. Our pedigree of experience and our expert consultants offer an ‘end-to-end’ service encompassing technical, commercial and financial rigour and informed opinion to support and assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on sectors, businesses and projects. We provide market assessments, technical due diligence, deal structuring and transaction advice to help our clients to develop strategies and make decisions with the confidence that risks, and analysis of the market, asset and consumer are appropriately considered when thinking about the short-, medium- and long-term impacts of this pandemic.
