What sets us apart: our values

We go beyond the mainstream

Whether it is legislation affecting foreign investment in Myanmar, a political transition in Mozambique, or the safety of global sea routes, we provide thorough insights on important developments typically under-reported by mainstream media. Often, we lead the way – a great recent example was the large number of major news outlets quoting our article on Xi Jinping and the “Winne-the-Pooh dissidents” – 3 years after we broke this story. We pride ourselves on looking for risk and opportunities where others have not. To be competitive in today’s global economy, businesses and investors need a truly global perspective that reaches the most remote corners of the world. 

We provide more agile analysis

In an era of rapidly shifting political risks mere headlines and summaries are not enough. Businesses and investors require clear-eyed analysis and rigorous research. GRI delivers just that. Our extensive network of experts and on the ground presence enables us to read between the lines and provide highly analytical coverage. We won’t just tell you what happened, we will help you make sense of it and act on it.

We are completely transparent

Everything we do is right here, in our online archive – not being fed through a ‘black box’. So you can always judge us on our results. Through rigorous research and analysis our global team of experts has been able to correctly predict critical political risk events around the world. From a coup in Thailand to the successful completion of the Iran nuclear deal to the outbreak of conflict between Israel and Hamas, GRI analysts have leveraged local expertise and world-class training to alert our readers to significant international developments well before they occur.

We look for the silver lining

Political risk analysis is typically associated with negative events. Most political risk firms are solely focused on helping businesses and investors avoid losses stemming from political events. We believe they are missing half the puzzle. Developments such as new investment laws, changing government spending patterns, or improved security situations can lead to significant profits for those well-placed to take advantage of them. By highlighting opportunities, in addition to risks, our readers are positioned to benefit from important developments around the world.
