Catherine L’Hostis of Frontier Economics today spoke at the Club of Regulators workshop in Paris. Catherine introduced a discussion on the cost of capital from a cross-industry and cross-country perspective. Members of the OECD’s Network of Economic Regulators also participated in the workshop.
The workshop provided participants with an opportunity to compare practices across countries and industries in relation to setting allowed rates of return. In particular, the institutional contexts in which regulators use the cost of capital, the methodologies they rely upon, the way they interact with various stakeholders and the key challenges they face were discussed.
The French Club of Regulators is an independent forum attached to the Chair in Governance and Regulation hosted at the University Paris-Dauphine. The Club brings together French regulatory authorities willing to exchange information on institutional and organisational challenges that cut across different sectors, aiming to propose coherent actions and promote co-operation at both national and European levels.
Frontier regularly advises clients on regulatory issues across Europe.
