Project Risk Studies

Everyone in this business does country studies; who leads the country, the banking and political system, hot spots, evacuation routes, etc.  Honestly, it's nothing that you can't find for free by googling 'CIA Factbook.' 

 

We don't do country studies, we do Project Risk Studies

This report looks specifically at the work you are doing and how the situation in a given country or region will affect your assets, projects, profits and success.  This quantitative report combines business acumen with economics, politics, risk and legal issues.  It paints a picture that will help you determine where and how to invest in a country or region, how to get through all legal issues in the project host country, all the problems and issues you might  face and how to overcome them.
