Consumer policy research
Our consumer policy research covers a wide range of regulated and unregulated markets - allowing us to identify the problems consumers face in particular markets as well as drawing comparisons and lessons about the policies and practices commonly found in a number of markets. Our research allows us to develop practical policy solutions for the problems our clients and the wider population experience in consumer markets.
