Enhanced Lifecycle Management
The lifecycle fund in is one of the most fundamental components for the strategic asset management of any estate, whether that’s planning against budget for the public sector, optimizing value for the private sector, or ensuring the most effective delivery on a PPP project. If not managed well, the fund can expose investors and stakeholders to an increasing amount of risk.
Through continuous, active management, Vercity can help ensure that your expenditure is optimised and your risk exposure is reduced. Using industry-leading techniques, we can address the relevant technical and financial aspects of a project, ensuring your asset replacement programmes are properly coordinated, controlled and supported.

Better data capture for better insights
Data capture is essential in gaining insights into your project’s whole lifecycle. Without it, you risk having out of date intelligence, uncoordinated records and a lack of information from which to make decisions and strengthen your portfolio.
At Vercity, we have a structured approach to data capture, where digital records are consistently maintained throughout your asset’s lifecycle.
We also provide solid data security, so you can rest assured that your information will be safe and compliant with all regulations
Robust lifecycle fund management
We manage short term expenditure via annual and rolling five-year forecasts based on full life data capture. In turn, this ensures that insights are based on your project history as well as your current activities, helping to inform your assets’ future.
You can be assured that applicable insights from the portfolio we manage will be used to inform our work on your projects. In delivering a planned programme, your asset performance can be tracked and adapted as necessary to meet your objectives.
In cases where there are surplus funds, we can ensure that savings are properly evidenced to support any third-party approvals. We carry out due diligence to support approval by shareholders, debt providers and procuring authorities, based on verifiable, robust and authentic analysis.
Through ongoing engagement, our specialist team will assist in quantifying and articulating risks to optimise value and support management decisions. We use financial modelling to assess the impact of your asset’s lifecycle model against ratios and distributions.

Properly managed capital planning
Every lifecycle model makes assumptions regarding the number of replacements each asset will require throughout the course of the concession. Vercity will do the right thing, at the right time for the right reasons. We challenge replacement assumptions with alternative maintenance and refurbishment options. We consider the needs and experience of the end users while considering the sustainable use of the asset.
