The Inkerman Group’s Corporate Intelligence department is commissioned to look into all issues relating to the operational continuity of our clients, which include a diverse range of businesses, notably government agencies and multinational corporations. As our services are bespoke, we come across a great variety of key political, economic and security trends, some of which we wanted to highlight in this blog in hope that other businesses will benefit from the information we think is important to any forward thinking organisation.
Our commentary may also be of interest to those looking to learn more about political risk and threat mitigation. Self-evidently, events such terrorism, riots, coups, civil war and insurrection have the potential to profoundly affect any business operation. More often than not, all dramatic events of this nature unfold after a prolonged prelude of political, social and economic instability and are rarely, if ever, unpredictable. The emerging international policy initiatives and ways in which they shape political, economic and security landscape are also of great interest to us and, we hope, our readers.
These reports contain essential information for any organisation choosing to send its employees overseas. This includes assessments of the risk posed to travellers associated with terrorism, kidnap and crime. There is also information regarding the political situation in the country, the situation with regard to the operation of the security forces and travel restrictions, alongside more general local intelligence. Similar reports can also be produced for specific cities.
Political Risk Reports
These are more comprehensive reports tailored towards businesses wishing to commence operations in unknown or suspect environments. They include detailed information on political and economic risks in the country or region – security, corruption, regulation and the general climate for the operation of foreign organisations in the country.
