What Is Political Risk?
Political decisions, actions, and events can have a dramatic effect on business and economic activities. Political risk analysis examines local, national, and international politics to determine their impact for corporations and investors. Risk factors range from violent uprisings to changes in government to new laws and regulations.

Why Is Political Risk Important?
Political risk is a critical factor in nearly every business or investment decision.  Political events can dramatically change an economic climate overnight. Without proper knowledge of the political dynamics in a given locale, companies leave themselves at serious risk.

How Can GRI Help?
Our team of political risk analysts provide critical insight into developments around the world. Through rigorous research, in-depth analysis, and objective reporting we are able to cast light on the political events companies and investors need to know about.

Who Are Our Analysts?
