Strategic advisory


Clear insights for crucial business decisions

Our strategic advisory work – coupled with the company’s integrity and compliance capabilites –  makes apparently opaque commercial and political systems more understandable, helping you navigate potential minefields to develop profitable business in even the most difficult of jurisdictions.

Our strategic advisory work for private clients encompasses a range of services from developing market evaluation studies and strategies, to detailed political risk analysis, scenario building, and stakeholder and influence mapping.

Through political risk analysis, we evaluate how political forces and personalised politics may impact on a client’s business.

Bespoke research may involve analysis of regulatory and legislative frameworks, contextualising ministries, agencies or local corporations, and identifying key influencers and decision-makers.

Examination of the commercial environment can include feasibility studies, competitor analysis and market entry strategies.

Our diverse team of political scientists, security experts, economists and management consultants are supported by an extensive network of on-the-ground correspondents and trusted associates.

Findings are delivered either as confidential reports and via face-to-face and telephone briefings.
