Our Focus on Africa and the Middle East
Research sources predict c.25% growth per annum in the demand for Risk Management & Security Services in Africa & the Middle East over the next ten years. This is triple the growth rates predicted globally.
Demand in these Oil & Gas regions is attributed to growing economies, new business formation, foreign investment activity and the recent acceleration of terrorism and insurgency. Due to the complex (and often impenetrable) nature of certain countries and terrorist and insurgent groups, Risk Management and “Private Security Services are, for the most part, underdeveloped in these regions”.
