I use Africa Integrity because of their genuine, first-hand experience in Africa. It’s such a challenging place to operate ethically but in Africa Integrity we are reassured by the fact that they understand our requirement to use ethical business partners and also that they go about their information collection in an ethical manner which will not reflect badly upon us.Regional Investigations Director, EMEA, for a global pharmaceuticals company
In 2012 and 2013, Africa Integrity provided two reports, addressing the geostrategic shape of West Africa, and probable trends in the near term and out ten years. The reports were required to serve the needs of an international investor and philanthropist operating across the region and more widely. The analyses were unusually well written, were based on long personal experience of the region and many current contacts there, and addressed economic, cultural, political, social and geographical dimensions amongst others. I would not hesitate to refer to Africa Integrity again in similar circumstances.Project Director, International Strategic Review for a High Net Wealth personal investor and philanthropist.
Africa Integrity has provided my company with two years of exemplary service in bespoke risk-intelligence reporting and analysis covering the span of our business operations across Africa. They have supported my organisation’s security and investigations team to formulate their threat assessments to ensure business security strategies are thoroughly researched, defined and cost-effective and aligned to specific regional and country threats. Africa Integrity’s products, reporting styles and timings have been aligned with the company’s political, social, regulatory and ethical concerns as they have evolved. And regular dialogue has enabled our security teams to react to short term events and provide strategic risk guidance to executives to shape business risk appetite.Head of Physical Security, Africa, for a multinational financial institution
Our company engaged Africa Integrity to assist in an East Africa new-country entry in the natural resource sector. Over the course of 18 months Africa Integrity provided a variety of services that proved vital to developing an informed view of the potential risks associated with the business environment, which provided confidence to our executive management prior to making substantial financial obligations. Stakeholder profiling and influence mapping for our project, to ensure ethical engagement, was conducted by a network of well informed, respected, individuals and discreet in-country sources. Africa Integrity created bespoke counter-corruption training for key company staff to prepare them for conducting business in a notably challenging environment. Arranged by well qualified and experienced professionals, this was effective, interesting and useful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Africa Integrity for balanced, ethical, intelligence in Africa.Exploration New Business Manager for an international oil company.
