Big data and predictive analytics drive our political risk assessments. We use natural language processing techniques to filter thousands of news reports every day for relevant information. Combined with qualitative expertise, this enables us to provide timely security updates and comprehensive risk analyses. We have successfully worked with companies from the the insurance, manufacturing, logistics, and shipping sector to provide them with services that enable them to better understand their exposure to political risks.
