Business and Investor Advisory
Our advice enables and supports investment in infrastructure and urban environments.
Our clients are driven to improve performance, secure value for money, achieve required returns and optimise use of assets. To do so, we know they increasingly seek to understand market drivers, technical, commercial and operational issues.
Arup’s transaction advice specialists translate technical and commercial issues into financial analysis and clear recommendations. This allows our clients to fully evaluate investment opportunities, creating a competitive edge for investors or delivery certainty for asset owners.
Our strong advisory track record spans the energy and utilities, social infrastructure, transport and property sectors worldwide.

Strategies for success
Our strategic and economic advice helps our clients take the right direction. We futureproof projects, programmes and businesses against risks and challenges through our deep understanding of policy and regulatory issues, our industry knowledge and technical expertise.
Our expert recommendations can optimise your business case preventing inefficiencies. We draw on sector experts from across Arup to deliver integrated, evidence-based advice.
Our corporate financiers provide financial advisory services on project finance, public-private partnerships (PPP) and infrastructure merger and acquisition transactions globally. Through insight into the technical and operating issues within transactions, our financial advice focuses on the real deal drivers.
Our experts have supported many public sector groups to prepare financial business cases, procure and deliver major investments using innovative funding models as we did for the San Francisco Presidio Parkway P3 project.
For private sector clients, we conduct bid strategy, options appraisals and financial modelling, assisting in securing project finance. Our assistance can guide the project procurement process.
Arup is authorised by the UK’s Financial Services Authority to provide corporate finance advice and is registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission and Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board as a Municipal Advisor.
We are global leaders in technical and commercial due diligence across all infrastructure asset classes. Advisors on over $60bn of successful transactions since 2009, we were also recognised as Global Technical Adviser of the Year and Global Energy Adviser of the Year in 2012.
Our due diligence is more than a technical health check enabling buyers to make better informed investments, and investors to transform the performance of existing assets.
Clients come to Arup for guidance in negotiating favourable deal terms through commercial, technical or environmental due diligence, vendor due diligence or lenders’ technical advice.
Assets that perform
Many clients seek to optimise asset performance. To support this, we bring together global transaction knowledge to benchmark asset management and operational performance, determining appropriate improvement and project delivery strategies.
