Economic Regulation

Indecon brings economic, financial and strategic tools to bear on problems facing companies, regulators and policy makers. Our advice is underpinned by a thorough understanding of the economic forces driving markets, industries and company decision-making processes within specific institutional, legal and regulatory environments.

In addition to conceptual and qualitative analysis, we have expertise in applying a wide range of quantitative tools, including econometrics, financial modelling, non-parametric techniques and simulation modelling.

  • Optimal pricing and product design

  • Design and review of regulatory measures

  • Real and financial asset valuation

  • Development of regulatory compliance processes

  • Regulatory impact assessment
