Economic Analysis

Many members of our team (including our managing partner, John Rodger) are experienced professional economists. Over the years we have delivered economic analysis for central and local government, private sector and charitable/voluntary sector clients.

This has helped shaped policies and directed future strategies. We have expertise in costing analysis, return on Investment studies and impact assessments.

Costing Analysis

Deploying structured collection of detailed cost information; cost consequence analysis and cost comparison.

Social Return on Investment (SROI) and Fiscal Return on Investment (FROI)

Assessing the costs and benefits of policies and interventions to reveal how effective money/resources have been spent. We have been trained in the SROI methodology (by the New Economics Foundation) and have developed our own variant - the FROI methodology - which is now used by a a number of Local Authorities that provides an understanding of the cashable savings with a fiscal year.
