At the core of Alchemi Groups fiscal responsibility is the Financial Department. It plays a key role in all phases of a project, by accurately forecasting investor returns to assess a developments feasibility, analysing debt funding options for recommendation to investors, considering all financial, legal and taxation risks prior to purchasing, and by monitoring costs throughout a projects lifespan. Essential to Alchemi Groups success is an ongoing accountability to investors to maximise returns; risks are identified and mitigated, cash flow is tightly controlled, and past performances are analysed to better reach the companys and investors goals.
