Economic & Financial Consulting Practice

Our team of economists, accountants and finance experts draw on a core set of skills. We perform a wide range of economic and financial analysis to provide expert advice to our clients. Applying the theory and principles of micro-economics and finance, we analyse problems in a highly logical, structured and practical way, combining academic rigour with commercial judgement.

We have offices in cities across the world, with more than 250 staff worldwide. In London, our EFC practice has more than 140 people and each year we look to recruit at least 15 graduates. We operate in two main areas, Valuation, Disputes and Arbitration and Economic Regulation.

Valuation, Disputes and Arbitration

We have significant expertise in the valuation of businesses, intellectual property, financial products and other assets. We regularly provide expert evidence on valuation issues and the quantification of economic losses before courts and tribunals worldwide in a wide range of disputes.

We also provide valuation services for commercial, reporting and regulatory purposes, for example, in the context of licensing, investment appraisal, fiscal valuation and transfer pricing.

Economic Regulation

Our team of economists, econometricians and regulatory accountants have extensive experience across all the regulated sectors, including energy, telecommunications, transport, water and healthcare. The team has been responsible for the delivery of regulatory solutions in these sectors across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

We apply economic theory in a highly practical way to offer economic advice to both regulators and regulated companies on a wide range of issues, including:

  • prices regulated firms are allowed to charge;
  • regulatory framework and tariff design;
  • cost efficiency analysis and benchmarking; and
  • regulatory cost accounting.

As a graduate you will have the opportunity to apply your intellect and analytical skills to challenging economic, financial and business issues across many different industries.

You will be supported through professional qualifications to become a Chartered Accountant (ACA) or a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). In addition, we have a comprehensive in-house learning and development programme. As you take on new responsibilities, your training will help you develop into an effective and professional consultant.

You will receive a competitive starting salary of at least £40,000, a sign on bonus of £3,000, annual performance-based bonuses and a comprehensive benefits package. From there, we offer a well-defined career path with regular appraisals and opportunities for accelerated promotion for star performers.

We also offer secondment opportunities to our international offices (in Paris, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul, Toronto or South Africa) and our people are encouraged to provide pro-bono support to charities and contribute to other outreach projects.

Applications for our 2020 graduate process are now open.

We also offer summer internships, 12-month industry placements and Easter insight days.
