Perhaps if they had been proactive, obtaining Whitehall Country Risk Assessments, those companies and traders that suffered lossed might have been able to prevent them.
Developed from a myriad of sources, including official, business, and industry, as well as the latest global news headlines that Whitehall constantly monitors, our Country Risk Assessments are reliable trade tools. Offering analysis of the near-term market risks -- useful for portfolio managers, and longer-term risk-related trends -- required by direct investors in plant and equipment. Government agencies, exporters looking for distributing partnerships, manufacturers seeking partners for in-country production consider Whitehall's Country Risk Assessments well worth the $450 investment that each report costs.
