Advisory
today.
Delivering engagements from strategy through execution.
Building relationships takes time; time, and a desire to understand each other. To help explain who we are, what we do and how we can bring distinctive value to your business, we’d like to share some of our story.
‘Clients continue to tell us that they want strategic advice that they can execute across their business. And we are uniquely positioned to deliver this’
Recent years have seen rapid evolution in the needs and strategies of organisations, bringing four business critical areas to the fore – transformation, technology, transactions and crisis. To help deal with these concerns, companies are now, more than ever, looking for advisors they can trust to get to grips with their issues and deliver a full end-to-end solution, consistently and at scale.
Reflecting this, and the fact that business value and deals are now less about the ‘big idea’ and more about superior implementation. We’ve implemented a new approach we call ‘strategy through execution’ – a multi-specialist model bringing together deep competency and sector expertise from across and beyond our Advisory practice to address companies’ needs along their full value chain.

GLOBAL FUND
Improving healthcare in the world’s poorest countries
PwC Brazil has been awarded a five-year contract to establish and run a new organisation (the EAQ – Entidade Aferidora de Qualidade) that will monitor the quality of broadband services in Brazil. It was the only major consulting firm that was asked to compete for the contract by the Brazilian telecoms regulator Anatel.
PwC Brazil and PwC UK worked together with a UK-based broadband technology provider to win this. The combination of PwC’s telecommunications’ expertise and its partner’s credentials created a powerful proposition
Additionally, PwC’s leading reputation in the telecoms industry in Brazil was a key success factor as the body awarding the contract included representatives from more than 20 Brazilian broadband service operators as well as Anatel’s management. From winning the contract, PwC Brazil has built a new organisation from scratch, and now has 30 full-time people working in the EAQ office in Brasilia.
ANATEL
Monitoring the quality of broadband services in Brazil
The Global Fund is a US$23 billion financing institution based in Geneva, which funds programmes to prevent, treat and care for people with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria in the world’s poorest countries. PwC has been working with the Fund since its creation in 2002.
As a provider of finance, the Global Fund does not directly implement any programmes. It funds mostly national institutions, like ministries of health or NGOs to deliver programmes that will have the greatest impact on the three diseases. For the financing to be used as effectively as possible, the Global Fund uses a number of Local Fund Agents (LFA) on the ground. Their role is to help to assess the capacities of key implementers in-country and provide ongoing monitoring of the use of funds and the progress of programme implementation. PwC firms currently act as LFAs in 72 countries, with more than 350 people working to assist the Global Fund in making effective programme funding decisions.
SOUTHWEST AIRLINES
Building the gateway to the future of air travel
Now in its 42nd year of operation, Dallas-based Southwest Airlines carries more domestically-originated passengers than any other airline in the US. In late 2010, Southwest announced its commitment to “spreading low fares farther”, and said it would start building its gateway to the future by acquiring and integrating AirTran Airways.
This deal was a huge undertaking for Southwest. It would increase its reach from 72 to 97 destinations and its fleet size by 25%, while also seeing it officially enter international markets – a game changer for a carrier that historically provided domestic-only services.
Overall, the proposed merger highlighted the need for the help and support of a strategic partner Southwest had come to trust: someone that understood Southwest’s culture and a proven champion of Southwest’s strategic initiatives. The US firm hit the ground running, pulling together several high-performing teams committed to helping Southwest achieve its goals. In January 2013, the integration efforts were completed with the successful sale of flights spanning the combined Southwest and AirTran flight network.
OERLIKON
Helping Oerlikon to develop its long-term growth strategy for India
Oerlikon is a highly innovative industrial group specialising in machine and plant engineering. In its drive to double revenue growth in India in the next five years, Oerlikon Group needed to identify opportunities for extending its business in the country. Operating in a diverse set of industries and product categories, the Swiss group recognised that a holistic and cohesive approach would be essential. To drive a successful long-term outcome, and combat increased competition from mid-market players, it set out to promote India, at group-level, as a vital growth engine in a growing market.
To help achieve its ambitious targets, Oerlikon turned to PwC’s Emerging Markets Centre of Excellence. PwC India’s Mumbai-based team helped Oerlikon to extend its understanding of the Indian business environment, develop new value propositions and put in place a tailored operating model that would deliver on its objectives.
JICA
Helping developing countries do more with less
The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is a government agency that executes Japan’s Official Development Assistance programmes in developing/emerging markets. JICA’s role includes helping Japanese companies establish businesses that serve the ‘base of the pyramid’ (BoP) – commonly defined as the four billion people in developing countries who live on less than US$2.50 a day.
To support these goals, PwC Japan has helped JICA to promote BoP businesses to Japanese companies, including operating the Feasibility Study (F/S) programme.
In evaluating the bids for this work, JICA was very impressed with PwC's global credentials, especially the UK-led ‘Business Innovation Facility’, which is aimed at pioneering new ways of working that will improve the lives of the poor. And the Sweden-led ‘Innovations Against Poverty’, which works to stimulate and support sustainable business ventures that might not otherwise be pursued because of perceived commercial risks and market uncertainties.
CHRISTCHURCH
Helping to rebuild post-quake Christchurch
In February 2011, a devastating earthquake struck New Zealand’s second-largest city of Christchurch, located in the country’s Canterbury region. The cost of the damage has been estimated at around NZ$40 billion, making it New Zealand’s costliest natural disaster ever. In the immediate aftermath, PwC New Zealand was engaged by the newly-formed Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) to lead and coordinate the recovery efforts.
We seconded two directors to CERA to help set the organisation up – a move that helped us gain insights into the challenges ahead. This work included advising on a financial blueprint, investor engagement and the business cases for anchor projects. Additionally, restoring public transport was a priority after the earthquake, and we provided a due diligence report on the landscape of Christchurch including public transport planning. We also developed a dedicated Christchurch Rebuild page on the PwC website, focusing on the risks for companies associated with the reconstruction efforts.
