Thinking Globally, Acting Locally
SI Consultancy assesses how changing policies and evolving regulations could impact upon commercial interests.
SI Consultancy mitigates risk, identifies opportunities and predicts future trends via its interdisciplinary and multidimensional analysis that merges the various strands of policy, security, economics history, culture, ideology and religion that have an impact on operations on the ground. This enables governments, organisations and corporations to:
Deliver consistent high quality best practice
Inform & develop corporate frameworks
Stress test against current legal and operational environments
Support and facilitate major investment
Address transformation & business change management
Develop the business case and justification for major technological or human capital investments
Drive enhanced organisational performance
Incorporate systems of governance and review/anticipate change
Assure the ability to meet the future needs of the organisation in an effective, efficient, economical, and ethically sustainable fashion
To this end, SI Consultancy helps operating companies and strategic investors identify, assess, and forecast political risks and opportunities when entering into or expanding within international markets.
Public and Private Sector Association
SI also assesses how the private sector can not only mitigate risk, but also collaborate with the public sector to shape policy and serve as a stabilising influence, offering sustainable and inclusive growth in given territories.
SI integrated research platform can be customised for each client depending upon their specific business models, risk tolerance, humanitarian interests and industry sectors. SI can emphasise upon security or economics or the culture of the local ecosystem depending upon the client’s needs. This is in contrast to the traditional standardised approach to country risk that is not interdisciplinary and as such cannot be tailored for the clients’ specific requirements.
SI is fully conversant with established and developing international laws and standards of business compliance. Compliance with these laws is at the core of SI culture and strategies enabling clients to navigate their way through risk and even reduce risk by making a humanitarian impact in areas that their supply chain functions. SI goes one step further still by making predictions on the evolution of financial regulations resulting from the dynamics of international politics and globalization and how it may affect investments and business operations.
Media Reporting versus Analysis
Traditional political risk rely upon open-sourced media reporting what is happening in a politicized narrative form that lacks any analytical or strategic depth. Examples include the media’s portrayal of the Arab Spring as simply being protestors seeking a Madisonian democracy or civil war in Syria without the geo-political, financial and security repercussions. SI not only will relay what happened, free of bias and agenda, but also offer proprietary information and share proprietary analysis that includes the historical, ideological and economic reasons of why it happened. This provides a context for understanding how ‘today's hot item’ is actually part of an ongoing narrative of developing events that proceed to develop a trajectory of forecasting future events.
