Public Wealth By Detter & Co

Sitting on
a goldmine

Every city and national government is sitting on a virtual goldmine of commercial assets, much larger than their debt. While managing debt has been the concern for decades, public wealth remains opaque and largely ignored. The lack of transparency and the polarised debate on public ownership has missed the most important point – the quality of asset management.

Doubling

investments

An achievable improvement in public asset management would yield returns that could help fund infrastructure investments and other public services without increasing debt or taxes - to boost economic growth.
