Managing Political Risks

Understanding and managing the political risks prevalent in the countries in which your organisation operates is a key component of continued success. Equally, exploiting business opportunities in challenging environments is easier when you are prepared for the risks involved.

Control Risks has a team of over 50 analysts. They range from country specific experts, to experts in global issues. Our analysts follow trends in political and security risk, analysing what these mean for our clients. Their analysis is informed through a variety of sources, their own in-country contacts, regular research trips, and desk-top research.

To help you mitigate the risks your organisation faces, Control Risks has a number of solutions which can be tailored to the needs of your organisation.

  • Consulting and Analysis. Our team of analysts work with clients to address the particular areas of risk they face.
