Sometimes its good to have a second opinion. Temple undertakes independent reviews of proposed investments for boards, banks and management teams. These reviews can take several forms:
- Preliminary reviews to identify opportunities and weaknesses in the investment thesis and provide an early opinion on the potential success of an investment.
- Pre-mortem reviews of proposed investments to flush out any investment biases
- Detailed investment reviews and recommendations
Examples of how we’ve worked with clients in this area:

Engaged by the Managing Directors of two business units to assess, critique and quantify improvement opportunities. Included in the role was identification of critical metrics (value driver trees), technical assessment of machine constraints and development and oversight of improvement programmes.
Identified performance improvement opportunities of over US$ 5 million (representing 150% of EBIT).
