In the investment community, risk/return and price are inexorably linked. However, in situations with a breadth of risk categories including political and security risk, what appears to be a high risk investment may actually be a much better investment than what initially appears to be a much lower risk investment. Integrating investment professionals and risk professionals with expeditionary experience we assist capital in understanding the actual risks involved in potential investments, and assist those seeking to raise money in ensuring that their business cases addresses their particular risks in a manner optimized for the investment community.
Investing in new ventures, particularly in emerging markets, presents a range of risks to both the intended business and the investor. Many of these risks are manageable; some may not be.
