What We Do

Our team of consultants come from a wide variety for academic backgrounds. At FTI they develop skills in economics and finance as well as drawing on their problem solving and analytical skills to answer a range of questions for high-profile clients.
We specialise in two main areas:
  • Providing valuation advice about anything from large public companies to patents and trademarks. We do all types of work, but in particular we are the leading firm in advising on valuation issues before courts and tribunals all around the world; and
  • Economic regulatory advice, where we apply economic theory and in-depth experience to offer advice to both regulators and regulated companies on a wide range of issues.

  • We have offices in cities across the world, with more than 250 staff worldwide. In London, our EFC practice has more than 150 people and each year we look to recruit at least 15 graduates from any degree background.
    Examples of the questions our clients ask us
    • What impact did Uber have on the earnings of Black Cab drivers in London?
    • What is a fair way to distribute money to artists from steaming service royalties?
    • How much extra cost did the NHS incur because a generic drug was kept off the UK market by an invalid patent?
    • How much is the brand name of a premiership football club worth?
    • What is the value of an airport in South Africa?
    • Do US stock exchanges undervalue Chinese companies?
    • As part of the Foskett Panel, how much compensation should business owners receive after they were wrongly made to close by Lloyds Bank?
    • Does an econometric analysis of a European bank's share price indicate that it was affected by the release of inside information?
    • How large are the benefits of subsidising rural broadband networks in Europe?

    What You Will Do
