Capital Planning

Sycamore Advisors’ comprehensive involvement in long-term financial and capital planning is unique among financial advisory firms. Often partnering with engineering firms, Sycamore advises its clients from the beginning stages of planning through project construction and ongoing debt and capital management. Sycamore helps achieve the most efficient and cost-effective delivery of a Plan of Finance for any capital program. Sycamore's integrated approach analyzes the answers to five core questions:

  • What needs to be built?
  • What is the project’s construction time frame?
  • What are the estimated costs?
  • When does financing need to be available?
  • What is the most cost effective financing method?

This is the heart of Sycamore's strategy to long-term capital planning. Developing specific project cash flows and understanding the timing and sequencing of projects facilitates a much closer matching of debt issuance to projected expenditures, reducing the impact of negative arbitrage and the need for capitalized interest, if any.
