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.

Working with the board of Control Risks in the development of the company has been a pleasure; the management team have been highly professional and the way in which the company has adjusted to take advantage of a hugely volatile political environment over the last five years has been impressive. When we invested in Control Risks in 2011 we committed to being patient and very soon established a rapport which enabled the obvious conflicts of interest with ease. I am confident that the team will continue to build on a great brand to build an even more impressive international business.
