The water sector is experiencing the largest set of proposed changes since privatisation 20 years ago. This gives rise to both opportunities and challenges that could have an impact for decades to come.
Retail competition, wholesale and upstream reforms, preparing for PR14 and financial issues all provide challenges and opportunities.
KPMG not only has a wealth of water credentials across advisory, audit and tax, but also, and in particular, deep understanding of the current policy, market, and regulatory reforms in the sector. We combine financial, economics and business perspectives, supported by our unique in-depth analytical capabilities, to gain insights into the value drivers and implications for companies’ strategies and financial positions. We are, therefore, very well positioned to translate the reforms into what they mean in practice, and what companies need to do to respond to the numerous, new challenges.
