Companies are operating in a more complex world, where global markets are interdependent, firms are bound together through intricate supply chains, and change is accelerated by digital technology. In such a dynamic environment, risks can emerge suddenly and cascade instantly across borders, markets, and industries, with impacts that can be both severe and hard to predict. Shocks on one side of the world can be felt everywhere, as can be seen in the current slowdown in China and its dampening effect on commodity demand and inter-regional trade.
As a consequence, companies are seeking advanced analytical tools to help them analyse and navigate the widening maze of external risks. These interconnected risks start with political and economic triggers and extend to operational, regulatory, labour, security, and cyber risks. Generic risk ratings are no longer enough: firms require more precise, predictive tools that can anticipate emerging risks, stress-test vulnerabilities, predict the timing of risk events, and gauge their impact and knock-on effects. To be effective, these risk tools must not just be sensitive to risk linkages, but also to the industrial mix and global footprint of a company’s business.
Control Risks and Oxford Economics have joined forces to provide the advanced analytical tools and custom solutions that companies need to make sense of today’s complex and fast-moving environment. By combining Control Risks’ extensive geopolitical, operational, and security expertise with Oxford Economics’ rigorous economic forecasts and models on 200 countries and 100 industries, we are able to provide the most complete risk analysis in the market. Our analysis covers a full range of interconnected external risks, including:

What are your linkages through supply chains, distribution networks, and partners? Where are your firm’s greatest risk exposures and vulnerabilities? What are your specific risk objectives and decision-support needs?
Once we establish your risk profile, we can agree on a risk analysis solution that best meets your needs and provides you with the right analysis, when you need it. Our custom solutions draw on five types of advanced risk analysis:
