A political risk consultancy created to leverage specialist analysis directly from a team of expert think tank researchers – believed to be the first of its kind in the UK – has been launched by the Henry Jackson Society (HJS).
Strategic Analysis at the HJS has been established to provide bespoke political, economic and security risk reports for clients including financial services firms, hedge funds, the legal and insurance sectors, and Government and international institutions.
Drawing on a wealth of expertise from HJS research fellows, Strategic Analysis is unique in that it taps into unparalleled knowledge of its own in-house think tank analysts, allowing it to forecast political risk ahead of the curve.
Its researchers are renowned experts in a diverse range of current risks, including unrest in Egypt, extremism and terrorism, the effects of the Arab Spring and ongoing instability across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
With a focus on MENA and Eurasia, Strategic Analysis exploits the in-depth monitoring and analysis to outline commercially relevant political, economic and security trends to minimize risk to businesses and to identify opportunities for investment.
Strategic Analysis’ Managing Director Ruth Lux said: “The depth of our research is Strategic Analysis’ unique selling point.
“With a focus on events in the Middle East, North Africa and Eurasia, our analysts are at the absolute forefront of their fields, with a network of contacts on the ground who can help us spot trends and predict risk ahead of anyone else.
“In addition, we offer our clients a bespoke service and can produce tailored reports working to their needs and priorities.”
Strategic Analysis has already produced a MENA report on political, regulatory and and security risks to the oil and gas sector. This looks at the enumerable opportunities within the MENA oil and gas sector in 14 countries; from the increased investment prospects in Iraq to the expansion of Libyan oil production.
However with opportunities comes risk. These risks can come in multiple forms, from expropriation of assets to physical attacks against people and property. Strategic Analysis also offers access to daily country risk briefs, which identify commercially relevant trends and forecast how events are likely to unfold over specific timeframes.
