Control Risks Group

In the mid-1970s international business executives had become the target of kidnappers in parts of South America.

Nature of business

An independent, specialist risk consultancy offering a range of services to enable its clients to succeed in complex or hostile business environments.

Description of deal

NVM exited Control Risks in March 2016

Growth strategy

Control Risks will continue to drive the strong growth of the business as an independent company.

The insurance industry sought more professional advisers to minimise their exposure, so Control Risks was born.

Increasing globalisation and complexity is driving the demand for advice and practical assistance in difficult business environments.

Control Risks offer a range of services addressing political, security and integrity risk challenges facing companies competing in a globalised but volatile world..

Control Risks now work from 34 offices on 5 continents, enabling its clients to operate in a range of hostile or complex business environments. The company has an outstanding client list including many of the world’s leading corporations, governments and non-governmental organisations.

In March 2016 NVM exited from Control Risks Group Holdings.

NVM’s advice has been supportive and robust, providing honest feedback on our planning and decision making. Tim Levett has been an excellent companion in the boardroom and brought his extensive experience to bear on all manner of issues.
