Who We Are:

Global Risk Insights (GRI) is a world-leading publication for political risk news and analysis. Our aim is to bring the political risk industry into the 21st century by making it more innovative and accessible. Our global network of experts provide cutting-edge analysis on political events shaping business, economic, and investment climates in every corner of the world. We help businesses and individuals stay ahead of the competition by illuminating unseen risks and highlighting undiscovered opportunities.

Our Story:

GRI was founded at the London School of Economics (LSE) by four then graduate students seeking to revolutionize the political risk industry. Political events ranging from new laws to revolution to changes in government spending have dramatic impacts on business and economic activity. Until GRI, political risk analysis lacked innovation and small businesses had no means to access political risk analysis. We set out to bring the political risk industry into the 21st century by creating new, cutting-edge approaches to political risk analysis and ensuring our analysis is accessible to all businesses, small or large – from start-ups, investment firms to multinationals.

GRI has been at the forefront of innovation in the industry – we pioneered a unique political forecasting methodology called Future Generator which combines data analytics with human intelligence.

We have a global team of over 200 analysts who embody our 21st century ethos – they are entrepreneurial in spirit, global in perspective and local in expertise. Our team includes current and former presidential advisors, intelligence officers, financiers, industry consultants, and journalists. Their work for GRI is frequently referenced by leading think-tanks, financial institutions, military generals, former foreign ministers and leading media outlets, including BBC World, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, TIME Magazine and many others.
