An international alternative investment management company
The company wanted to understand the impact of Brexit on the economy of Ireland to inform a potential acquisition in the waste management sector.
We provided a base case forecast for the Irish economy, with a focus on GDP, unemployment, inflation and the exchange rate. We identified the historical relationship between GDP and the level of waste generated economy-wide and calculated breakdowns for both the residential and commercial construction sectors. Additional insight into wages and tariffs provided a thorough assessment of the outlook for the sector. We then explored the outlook for the sector under three Brexit scenarios as well as a global recession.
We presented our analysis in a presentation-style report using both text and graphs to emphasise the key findings. We provided greater detail on the forecasts through tables and charts illustrating the differing outcomes of the key variables.
As a result of this project, the company had an understanding of the drivers of growth of the Irish economy and, by extension, the waste management sector. The application of four separate scenarios highlighted the opportunities and risks that emerged as a result of a variety of economic conditions, enabling the company to understand potential outcomes related to their investment.
