What We Do
Global Torchlight advises clients across a range of sectors on the full spectrum of political and security risks they face when operating internationally. For both commercial and government clients, whether there is a need to understand new markets and areas of interest or emerging developments in existing ones, we provide solutions.
Our clients choose Global Torchlight as their advisors because of our commitment to providing the tools and information they need to navigate challenges and make effective decisions.
We recognize that each client’s interests and risk profile are unique. Our local knowledge and industry expertise provides the foundation for bespoke advice and solutions that safeguard these interests and mitigate these risks.
Our clients know that information is vital, but we believe that it must be accurately analyzed and placed firmly in the context of each client’s particular objectives for its value to be maximized. By positioning our analysis within a deep understanding of those interests, we can fulfill our commitment to ensuring that our products and services inform decision-making and contribute to optimal outcomes for our clients.
We also believe that while identifying the full range of potential risks to a client’s interests is vital, improperly estimating those risks can also result in missed opportunities. By measuring and forecasting not only the nature but also the magnitude of risk factors, and doing so within the framework of a client’s specific risk exposure, we strive to offer both protection and enhanced awareness of opportunity.
We also believe that identifying risks is critical, but that mitigating them opens the door to new opportunities. Just as failing to understand all relevant risks can lead to substantial and even catastrophic consequences, an inadequate understanding of all local factors can also hide key opportunities that emerge when risks are known, prepared for, and mitigated.
What Sets Us Apart
With experience ranging from the battlefield to the boardroom, we combine powerful intelligence and analytical tools with a deep understanding of our clients’ needs.
We take a holistic approach that fuses our unique backgrounds in corporate legal practice, government intelligence, academia, and the media, leveraging the many tools acquired during decades of cumulative relevant experience in more than fifty countries. We apply a strict analytical framework, developed based on years of government and military intelligence experience, to ensure that no threat goes unidentified. Extensive experience in advising multinational companies on their business activities on five continents ensures that we understand the financial, operational, and reputational impacts each potential threat will have on our clients’ investments. Finally, we leverage our global network of experts with local knowledge and experience to identify and help protect against these risks.
