Demystifying corporate finance for the public sector

Corporate finance activity in government has responded to distinct cycles of economic activity, including the global financial crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic and events disrupting activities of key suppliers or strategic industries. Government has also pursued proactive policy initiatives to introduce private finance; generate proceeds via asset sales; and support new sectors or generate value through commercial investments.

This insight product will help to demystify corporate finance for senior staff working with corporate finance specialists. It will define key terms, describe how corporate finance relates to government and provide case studies to explain the value for money considerations we have reported on in the course of our work.
