Price-Setting Processes

Applied Economics

Price-Setting Processes

In this area of practice, we provide technical support to companies in regulated industries in the development of their respective price-setting processes, which take place every 4 or 5 years depending on the industry. Advisory services in this area can include the development of specialized reports required for price setting, such as demand estimates, asset valuation, or calculation of weighted average cost of capital; it can also consist of strategic support during the process, or the involvement of one of Quiroz & Associates’ partners as an expert, appointed by the regulated company to the committees that hear disputes among the parties.

Quiroz & Associates has participated in price-setting processes for companies in every regulated sector: utilities, telecommunications and electrical power. Jorge Quiroz, main partner with Quiroz & Associates, has participated in expert committees in several occasions.
