Regulatory economics and legislative support

Economic regulation extends to many areas of productive activity. Today it ranges from financial services such as banking and pension fund management to port services.

GBA has extensive experience in this field, particularly in the sectors of energy, telecommunications, roads, ports, banking, pension fund management, health insurance, and airport concessions among others. These industries experience constant regulatory changes, due either to technological developments or to the adoption of new targets as a result of economic policies. Regulatory change may also stem from new industrial organization designs or from establishing renewed institutional frameworks.

In this context, we support companies and trade associations in the processes of regulatory change, helping them outline their position and uphold their rights, both before regulatory bodies and before Congress and educational institutions. For this, we rely on a wide base of international precedents, literature and experience on the state of the art regulation and comparative analysis of different sectors at the national and regional level.
