We provide independent expertise and advice.

What we do

Market and regulatory design

We use economics to design solutions for clients that have information, incentive, or structural problems within their markets.

This can involve setting up new structures and rules to create new markets, improve the functioning of existing markets, or reduce the risk of market participants misusing their market position.
