Financial Analysis

Evaluations of financial investments focused on economic agents to prevailing market conditions. Analysis of the economic feasibility of the projects through: (1) estimation of the gains and losses of the stakeholders involved, (2) the evaluation of costs and social benefits, (3) the assessment of the dynamic uncertainty and the opportunities and risks connected with it, through the application of real options method.

Social and economic impact assessment

Analysis of the impact that a policy or project generates on the local community, through the evaluation of the direct and indirect effects, both tangible and intangible, related to the market economy, the institutions, the environment and cultural activities, in terms of view of a plurality of public and private stakeholders.

MODELS AND METHODOLOGIES

OPEN CGE-SAM

Long-term dynamic model allowing quantitative evaluation on the exchange relations and interdependence that established between all the agents of an economic system. It is used to assess how the impact of investments and current expenditure flows can affect some important economic variables such as production, employment, tax revenues, national and regional sectors, exports, imports, income distribution and prices.

OPEN EACB

Costs / Benefits analysis model extended to the Real Options. The model allows to extend the financial evaluation to economic indicators, including the estimate of shadow prices and indirect economic and social impacts, the extended economic net present value (VANES), the extended economic internal rate of return (TRIES), the benefit / cost ratio (B / C), the financial net present value (FNPV / C), the financial rate of return (FRR / C), the level of financial sustainability of the project (Funding gap).

OPEN PERFORMANCE EVALUATION

It is a model used to evaluate the impact of an operating entity on the economic and social framework described in terms of five basic components: inputs, activities / processes, outputs and outcomes. The model is based on a mix of econometric tools and computational modeling.

OPEN GREEN ASSESSMENT EVALUATION

The model covers six areas of investigation: Selection and Use of Proceeds, Reputational, Local and Environmental Risks, Borrowers Capacity to Carry Out Projects, Program / Project Definition and Execution, Program / Project Technology / Complexity, Evaluation and Reporting Assurance. The model returns a result in terms of score (performance) and by rating indicator for each area of investigation.

OPEN RISK ANALYSIS

It is a model that subjects the main variables used in economic evaluations to accurate computational stress according to the Monte Carlo methodology and Bootstrapping.
