Assets at work

GENERATING INCOME AND LIQUIDITY.

Urgency is a dynamic in most turnarounds. There’s little point in re-engineering for the long term if the business bleeds to death in the near term.  Once the cash position is defined and (temporarily) secured, we focus on business model and assets. The whole enterprise pivots on its business model, with oft assets being more quickly realised, refocused and monetised.

HOWEVER…

Councils can and should foster and nurture maximum commercial returns from the assets that they own and have control over. They are very capable of becoming public owners, investors and facilitators of successful businesses that maximise those commercial returns. Returns that a Council reinvests in a vibrant local economy, supporting its communities.
