Thought leadership case study
CMS commissioned us to aid production of the 2021 edition of their proprietary infrastructure index.
CMS is an international law firm that offers legal and tax advisory services.
CMS commissioned us to aid production of the 2021 edition of their proprietary infrastructure index which acts as a guide to the most attractive destinations for infrastructure investment across 50 jurisdictions globally.
We collected official statistics from national agencies and multinational organisations covering economic performance, political stability sustainability, tax environment, ease of doing business and private sector participation. We conducted a variety of interviews to add context to the quantitative information we collated.
We produced a ranking for each jurisdiction based on six specific criteria, thereby providing an objective, quantitative assessment. In addition to extracting novel insights from the data we collected, we utilised the interview to compile individual country profiles and to generate focus pieces on several key issues - Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), Net Zero targets, and digital infrastructure.
CMS utilised this report to raise its public profile within the infrastructure, energy, and technology, media, communication (TMC) sectors. By providing CMS with a clear narrative on these topics, the firm was able to build on its alignment with clients’ needs, while providing conversation starters, generating press coverage within relevant industry publications, and cementing the client’s reputation as a thought leader in the sector.
