Australian water market consists of multiple levels of legislation governed by a large number of regulators. Market information is scattered and trading rules often hard to interpret. To make the best informed decisions, you need the best independent advice, backed by deep expertise and real practical experience that can only be gained from direct experience in markets.

With Simo’s appointment, Marsden Jacob Associates strengthens our position as Australia’s leading water market advisory practice offering end-to-end in-house service across market policy and design, water portfolio optimisation, market trading strategies, market reporting, valuation and analysis, commercial due diligence, developing new water market products, and application of water trading rules across Australia.

If you really want to understand what’s happening in water markets, give us a call.
