A guiding belief of Control Risks since its foundation has been that risk taking is a prerequisite to success. We support private market investors and corporates through the entire deal cycle – from investment strategy to due diligence and intelligence to post-close deal integration and value creation.
Strategy and origination
Control Risks’ political risk analysis and business intelligence capabilities give private market investors the information they need to move forward with confidence. Our services provide support for the development and testing of investment strategies, the selection of an approach to origination, and initial assessments of new targets and opportunities.
