Effectively deploying limited resources for maximum impact is essential for optimal results. However, the challenge lies in accurately anticipating how a specific intervention will perform and evaluating whether it has produced the intended result. Nathan has the technical and management expertise to successfully navigate complex engagements. Working within strategic frameworks we tailor for each client, our experts identify key outcome variables, design surveys to collect data, and apply advanced econometric and statistical techniques to estimate impacts. We’ve provided hundreds of decision makers in governments and corporations around the world with the key insights to create more effective policies, projects, and economic development plans.

Impact Assessment

Decision makers need insight and understanding to create informed policies that will support a functioning private sector. With a holistic understanding of more than 125 country and regional environments, as well as deep experience collecting and analyzing data, we provide clients with the knowledge they need to make strategic decisions. Using a range of analytical tools, our in-house experts identify opportunities, anticipate challenges, and devise strategies, while taking into account regulatory and other bottlenecks that can impact efficiency, innovation, and competition. Our market analysis expertise allows us to design tailored, effective interventions that create opportunities for growth.

Market Studies

Effective regulations help markets work properly and protect consumer welfare and safety. However, regulatory overreach and improper regulations can weaken competition, protect inefficient and unsafe producers, and unfavorably impact consumer welfare. Nathan provides trade associations, companies, and regulators worldwide with an increased understanding of how existing and proposed regulations impact markets and consumers. Our experienced experts handle regulatory filings and submissions, draft new regulations, assist with the consultation process, and train and advise regulators on global best practices.

Regulatory Analysis

Ensuring accountability as well as optimal resource allocation and deployment requires effective results-based program management strategies. Nathan’s proven experts closely collaborate with decision-makers and one another to identify the impact and effectiveness of policies, strategies, and projects. Our clients rely on our insights to deploy limited resources, meet targets and goals, and incorporate lessons learned for better results. Nathan has conducted hundreds of impact assessments using a full range of survey design and implementation tools. We rigorously apply econometric techniques to primary and secondary data for actionable and context-specific management recommendations.
