Entering Unfamiliar, Opaque Markets Requires Strategic Intelligence, Data and Local Insight
Organizations looking to make a strategic move in unfamiliar or opaque foreign markets, need to consider many factors in their planning and decision making. Our corporate and investment clients engage us to provide an assessment of the political, economic and regulatory risk environment to inform board-level decisions.
Our client’s may also have questions on how best to position themselves in a new target market. Leveraging our in-country networks, we gather strategic intelligence on market actors and local commercial and political priorities. Our stakeholder and competitor mapping informs our clients’ engagement strategies with local authorities and industry players.
Following an investment in an emerging or frontier market, our political risk monitoring helps clients to safeguard personnel and assets. Gryphon’s ‘value-add’ is in the expert analysis of political and economic developments and the specific implications for the client’s operations. Our insight affords the maximum lead time to implement business continuity and contingency measures, minimizing disruption.
