Political Risk analysis in a North African country
CRW was retained by a global company to provide advisory services on the political, economic and physical security risks in relation to an investment in a North African country where the client intended to build a production site.
In addition to analysing the political and socio-economic risks, including local ethnic and religious tensions, CRW’s work included analysis of the strength of infrastructure, terms of tax policies, level of bureaucracy and corruption within public administration. Information was gathered through analysis of publicly available information and on-the-ground intelligence, as well as enquiries with confidential sources including public officials, foreign entrepreneurs operating in the country, former army officers, politicians, journalists and former European diplomats.
Based on CRW’s assessment, the client was able to include adequate risk mitigation measures in its long-term investment plan in the country.
