Case Study

In partnership with a joint venture partner Sweco, Altair were appointed to undertake housing and mortgage market sector analysis and financial modelling for the first green city project in Rwanda by FONERWA, the environmental agency of the Rwandan government. 

Altair were able to provide comprehensive analysis of the Rwandan housing sector and mortgage market, suggest feasible housing finance options to raise long term capital to fund affordable housing, complete the financial modelling, and preparing of an investor prospectus for a green finance bond.

Cornwall Council’s management agreement with its Arm’s Length Management Organisation (ALMO) was approaching the end of the term for the delivery of housing management and some general fund activity, and they needed to take action on what to do next.

Altair’s expert Strategy and Change Team applied their consistent and ‘tried and tested’ methodology to appraise the four available options: bring all services in house; retain the ALMO with current services; retain the ALMO with fewer services; and stock transfer.

By undertaking a document review, stakeholder interviews, and financial assessment, the team at Altair evaluated the options using a Suitability, Feasibility, Acceptability framework.

Altair’s detailed report enabled Cornwall Council to confidently recommend the option to retain the ALMO and offer a new management agreement for the delivery of housing revenue account services only.
