Investment Opportunity and Political Risk

  • Background
    A Western company seeking to conclude its first substantial investment in Central Asia engaged Veracity to analyze the political, regulatory, and security risks involved in investing in Kazakhstan during the country’s presidential transition.
  • Action
    Veracity determined that political and regulatory risks would not be material to the client’s interests in Kazakhstan. Veracity also assessed that the sector in which the client sought to invest, as well as the size of the investment, shielded the Western company from the predatory intentions of certain local businessmen and powerful bureaucrats.
  • Results
    Veracity’s assessment led to the client entering into a multibillion investment in Kazakhstan.
