Aussie consultancy expands infra services to UAE
Australian professional services company GHD will bring its infrastructure, investment, and economics expertise to the Middle East
Professional services consultancy GHD Advisory is expanding its range of services in the Middle East, one month after GHD opened a new office in Dubai.
GHD Advisory, a branch of Australian-based consultancy GHD, has launched its Infrastructure, Investment & Economics (II) services in the UK, Europe, and the UAE.
Its service aims to help clients balance financial risk and reward by offering strategic advice, business case development, as well as logistics and infrastructure policy help.
The company said its advisory team had worked on infrastructure transactions worth more than $100bn (AED367bn) to date, helping investors and business vendors make smart decisions on asset transaction.
The IIE service will be led by GHD Advisory’s executive advisor, Tim Mawhood, who will head to the UK in September to lead the company’s growth in this field.
“GHD Advisory’s growth in Australia and New Zealand has provided a strong platform for our global expansion,” said Mawhood.
“Capitalising on our technical expertise and commercial acumen, the IIE team will offer a range of services spanning across all infrastructure sectors. We see significant opportunities to help our clients manage risks, develop value, optimise their investment decision-making and engage in complex infrastructure transactions while improving returns from the assets they already own.”
Expansion of GHD Advisory’s services came a month after GHD opened an office in Dubai, to complement its office in Abu Dhabi.
The company has operated in the UAE since 2000, and employs 130 staff in its Abu Dhabi branch.
