Who We Are
Balkans Investment Consulting Agency (BICA) is a private company providing fund management, project and asset management, as well as government relations services. BICA was founded in 2006 and has gained extensive consulting experience in Bulgaria, Ukraine, Serbia, Macedonia and Kosovo. Our main focus and area of expertise is renewable and conventional energy, as well as energy efficiency projects in Bulgaria and the CEE region.
What We Do
Led by deep understanding of our clients’ needs, we invest money on behalf of our foreign partners. Our team identifies, analyzes and screens potential targets, structures the investments (raising equity and debt capital, EU grant financing, etc., if needed) and controls the development and subsequent management of the projects.
How We Do It
Our value comes from the ability to minimize risk allowing for optimal levels of return on projects we help bring into operation. Our team achieves this by providing local insight about the actual business environment and mitigating project-specific challenges – we rely on expert knowledge of the energy industry and a network of relevant stakeholders and decision-makers.
We support our findings with up-to-date, reliable and cross-validated research and analyses – valuable resources based on interviews with industry experts and best industry practices.
