Competitor Intelligence - Due Diligence - Political and Economic Risk Consulting

 

We combine global investigative and analytical expertise with a highly practical understanding of how businesses can navigate the challenges of working in unfamiliar markets.

 

Market entry assessment

Supported by our partners Oxford Economics, we help you validate and expand your understanding of the opportunities and risks new markets hold. We advise on the strategies you can employ to turn challenges to your advantage and engage with new markets productively.

If your market entry project is part of a broader restructuring, we can advise on destinations and strategies that mesh with your organisation’s overall direction and fit broad business imperatives.
 

Country profiling and benchmarking

When operating or considering expansion across multiple countries or regions, you need to prioritise limited resources. We help evaluate opportunities in competing markets with our global team of political, economic, regulatory and technical experts.
 

Competitor intelligence

Using our market leading expertise in the collection and analysis of layered information we help you understand the strengths, weaknesses, plans and intentions of competitors to maximise your advantage.

Control Risks’ competitor intelligence assignments combine discretion with the highest ethical standards and adherence to legal requirements.
 

Due diligence

As well as providing intelligence and analysis on partners and critical stakeholders, we forecast risks, whenever possible, for the full duration of your investment. We can go well beyond traditional standards for due diligence through reviews of partners’ compliance, risk management and governance programmes, as part of the pre- or post-transaction process.
 

Political and economic risk consulting

Control Risks and Oxford Economics together offer consulting that enables your organisation to navigate political and economic risk. Covering all aspects of the investment journey, including security and reputational risk, our joint consultancy overlays geopolitical and economic scenarios to bring new insights and direction.

Long referred to as the "Sick Man of Asia" for its less than impressive economic performance and often volatile politics, the Philippines has shown record GDP growth in excess of 6% over the last 6-8 years. Under President Rodrigo Duterte, the country has launched an ambitious "Build, Build, Build" infrastructure program and a strategic pivot to China. But how much has really changed?

When emerging markets stop growing: Bangladesh and COVID-19

Bangladesh has come a long way in the past decade, achieving record growth that has averaged between 6-8% in the past five years. This has made Bangladesh something of a darling amongst foreign investors comfortable with frontier markets. However, the competence of its unique government, which is effectively styled after one sole leader, Sheikh Hasina, is being tested by the COVID-19 crisis.

Economic trends in Asia

Asia was the first region to experience the Covid-19 virus, but the economic effects have varied widely across the region. Northeast Asia, Korea and Taiwan have emerged stronger than others, while structurally open economies like Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand are facing historic downturns.
