PSA: Your Over-the-Horizon Radar

Every initiative has two types of risk: the immediate, and the unimagined.  As local experts in the Philippines, we can help you quantify the immediate, and articulate what is over-the-horizon, to better help you plan for it.

Our unique perspective is informed by decades of hard-earned expertise in field work and strategic advisory in the Philippines, and around the world. We actively maintain an extensive network across the Philippines and South East Asia.

Risk Assessment

Risk Assessment serves as an essential tool to empower new market entrants and investors, ensure best practices of ongoing operations and facilities, and compare and contrast alternative investments and locations to minimize risks while maximizing opportunities and returns.

Our analysis includes the safety and security risks of a particular geography and threat groups, and is informed by  broader local risk categories including political, regulatory, and commercial concerns.

Risk Management

Modern leaders must demonstrate a proactive, forward-looking approach to risk management, informed by clear, unbiased assessment and analysis. We empower such leaders with timely, comprehensive, evidence-based and locally-grounded decision-making tools.

Through an iterative, capacity-building approach to Risk Management, we help you develop the mindset and necessary mitigation approaches for your unique risk profile.

Our experts identify and quantify your organisation's risk matrix, then we work with you to plug the gaps.
