A new model for investing in Government services

Few people expect our economic circumstances to change back to how they used to be any time soon. Government debt is at unprecedented levels. In this context, fresh thinking is required in terms of how public services might be delivered – and the role that companies like Equiniti Group might play.

As a business we recognise that new business models are needed where we can benefit from the upside, but also bear some of the risk if things don’t go to plan. It is, after all, an uncertain world. In the past taxpayers took too much of the risk on their shoulders – often without knowing it.

This short paper focuses on the types of structure that might emerge to deliver public services in the context of reduced public spending and reform of Government departments.
