Understanding counterparty risk is one of the most important first steps in a successful project or investment, especially in emerging markets where the real drivers of risk are rarely found on balance sheets.
Our counterparty risk assessments provide forward-looking analysis of reputational, legal and political risks associated with new or existing counterparts. We draw on our unparalleled intelligence collection infrastructure and in-country experts to support compliance, governance and business development teams in their due diligence process. Our understanding of local dynamics and stakeholders allow us to place reputational risk in the right current and future context to answer:
- Will this counterparty expose our client to FCPA or other anti-corruption legislation?
- Will the counterparty expose our client to payment risk, contract risk or reputational risk?
