Derivatives Pricing Benchmark
When we serve as Financial Advisor, we also design the interest rate risk, currency or inflation hedging strategies for the transaction. Our clients rely on us to understand the risks they are taking when placing a binding bid for a new project and to help them quantify and mitigate those risks. We have developed proprietary pricing tools which permit our clients to quantify those risks, benchmark and deconstruct the often opaque pricing of the derivative instruments embedded in our projects’ financing plans.
