Intelligence and Advisory Services

Seize opportunities safely and successfully – global intelligence, assured decisions

Planet Earth


Exposure to political and business risks pose challenges for investment and operational security globally, particularly in the emerging, volatile and frontier markets. Understanding these risks through intelligence analysis, advisory and insight can mark the difference between success and safety, financial or reputational loss. 
G4S Risk Consulting fuses open source information with the insights drawn from our extensive global footprint and on-the-ground networks in more than 90 countries to provide incisive foresight and informed strategic advice to companies, governments and individuals working in these challenging, unfamiliar or opaque markets. 
Our approach is based on committed partnership with our clients.  We work collaboratively to understand the objectives and challenges our clients face so that we can build a comprehensive intelligence picture to answer not just the ‘why’ and ‘how’ but the ‘so what’, the ‘what next’ and the ‘what if’.   

our team

Our trained open source intelligence analysts are regional and thematic experts and regularly spend time on the ground working with our G4S country teams and supporting project delivery. This ensures our clients receive the very highest level of support and access to the best available information and analysis. 
Central to our confidence in meeting the objectives and quality expectations of our clients is the level of access we offer to our analyst team. This enables our team to comprehensively understand the challenges our clients face and develop appropriate responses.
