Investment Management Services

 

Preliminary studies, accurate evaluations, and reducing the time before the construction commencement of a project, both reduces the costs, and has a significant role in the success of the project due to the acceleration of the operation start up.

Any investment idea has to go through numerous steps, various measures and actions to reach the construction commencement. This process includes all the preliminary and complementary economic, financial, market, technology, location and environment studies, conceptual, basic and detailed engineering design, negotiations with the investors, lenders, technology and machinery suppliers, free special zones or industrial states, governmental organizations  and agencies (in order to receive the necessary permits), and so on and so forth. All these steps require executive actions by the investor organization or by assigning to third parties.

Investing in large projects is carried out by major public or private companies whose various management levels and current trends, in some cases, lead to an intense reduction in the accuracy of the studies and slowness in fulfilling the tasks. Outsourcing and receiving management services from experienced and skilled teams, and just being monitored by the employer can be one of the solutions for improving the completion of the relevant affairs by the project management. AMC, based on its knowledge and its experience, offers management services to implement investment projects as follows:
