Investment, Advisory & Delivery Management
Risk management is the process of identification, analysis and acceptance or reduction of uncertainty in investment decisions. With our extensive knowledge of both market risk and project risk across Africa we work closely with funders and investors and assist them in making decisions.
A common definition of investment risk is a deviation from an expected outcome.
At Betts & Townsend we recognise that developing and frontier markets can provide attractive returns for investors and funders, however, without a good understanding of local conditions there will be a greater degree of risk. Our focus is to mitigate that risk and safeguard outcomes so that clients can realise their expectations.
At Betts & Townsend we provide a service which charts the journey from opportunity identification and investor engagement through to due diligence, project appraisal and then project procurement and ultimately, a fully integrated project delivery solution. We address risk and uncertainty and, as well as assessing socio-economic issues, managing stakeholders and engaging with communities, we will bring together the entire project service offering from the earliest stage.
We provide a range of services that offer a unique perspective and support to projects in challenging environments. With our experience of delivering complex projects in these environments we aim to support developers, investors and funders in making key decisions by providing a risk managed solution that covers the full spectrum.
