Our primary goal is to provide our clients with an improved understanding of the geo-political, economic and security climate in which they want to operate. We focus on those developing countries and emerging markets in which political, economic and security risks may be greater, harder to manage, or even more difficult to assess.  Our services include exclusive intelligence, due diligence, employee screening or vetting, and third party or vendor oversight.

Additionally, we cover the identification and management of commercial, operational and technical risks within existing operations or known markets, and provide solutions and support for reputation protection, crisis management, business resiliency, and cyber security.  

Clients of GDI include multinational firms, charities and non-government organizations, academic institutions and individuals.
