Sub-Saharan Africa

  • Background

    Senior executives at a leading energy firm required information to help anticipate local political and regulatory shifts that could impact their $5 billion-plus investment in an African country. The client maintained a substantial in-country risk-management team but needed an independent perspective to cross reference and expand upon the insight provided by their team.

  • Action

    Veracity provided periodic and on-demand analysis over a 16-month period derived from on-the-ground research and insight from a diverse range of local sources. Areas of focus included election dynamics, the president’s inner circle, near- and long-term sources of uncertainty, and the influence and structure of key institutions.

  • Result

    The client significantly benefited from a unique perspective on evolving risks impacting one of its largest investments from a dedicated team of on-call analysts.
