We mitigate risk and maximise opportunity through influencing policy in a range of jurisdictions across the world.

Through expert political analysis and in-depth research, GK provides unrivalled independent advisory services to investors on political and regulatory risks and opportunities. Our political due diligence team has advised on over 200 transactions across a range of sectors from health and education to energy, infrastructure and financial services.

Whether looking at local authorities in Northern Ireland, Government Departments in Whitehall, EU regulators in Brussels or the Ministries of the People’s Republic of China, GK identifies and speaks to the key decision makers, discovering the intricacies and dynamics of public sector institutions. Using this, we provide insight in depth and breadth, contributing commercially focused recommendations for strategic planning and value creation.
