Financial Model Assurance and Advisory services
Financial Model Assurance team supports project finance, acquisition, secondary market transactions and financings across all sectors. Our services are tailored to give clients the right degree of assurance and reliance to support financing, commercial and investment decisions.
Our clients are typically funders such as developers or investors bidding for, or seeking to finance, an infrastructure project. We also act for those looking to acquire or sell interests in assets or infrastructure projects. You may also require a model review or audit for a lender, institutional investor or credit agency.
We have developed particular expertise in the renewables sector, infrastructure finance and Public Private Partnerships (PPP).
Our Model Audit services are internationally recognised and respected. We have regularly been named by InfraNews as top global Model Auditor in its project finance League Tables and been awarded “Due Diligence Provider of the Year” by IJGlobal for two successive years.

Our approach to financial model services
We have developed a pragmatic and flexible, multi-layered approach to the audit of financial models. Our comprehensive methodology means all relevant issues are identified, resolved or reported.
Our proven and comprehensive bottom-up ‘all cells’ testing evaluates a model’s structure, data flows and logic. Our top-down analysis includes testing of key risk areas using a range of analytical procedures, including re-performance, proof in totals, trend analysis and sense checking.
We focus on what makes each project unique. We liaise closely with clients and key stakeholders at each stage of a project to make sure our work is delivering what they need.
We believe that our approach is the main reason that clients have asked us to work on over 1,500 projects worldwide since 1996, including model audits for many award-winning projects.
We have in depth experience in all sectors including:
- Transport infrastructure
- Social infrastructure
- Renewable energy
- Conventional energy
