United Kingdom

Welcome to the United Kingdom

Since starting out in Oxford in 1982, Oxera has been a leading economics and finance consultancy in the UK and beyond.

Government and companies initially looked to us for guidance on the privatisation of state-owned utilities, appreciating our thorough understanding of the regulatory and competitive landscape and our ‘ear to the ground’ agility.

Nearly 40 years later clients continue to benefit from these qualities, as our people continue to build trusted relationships with the people we work with. The UK water, energy, communications, and transport sectors have involved us in all major price reviews over the decades, and we play an extensive role in regulatory matters in jurisdictions across the world.

In addition to our core skills in finance, regulation and competition, our UK team, based in Oxford and London, make a difference across other disciplines and sectors, including competition policy, litigation, financial services, and digital markets.

Working closely with colleagues from across Oxera’s network of European offices, we deliver the economics and finance insight that helps businesses and policymakers make better decisions.
