Political Risk - Venture Capital Energy Project
The CEO was part of a covert operations team in Zagreb, Croatia which was retained by a venture capital company to gather Geo-political intelligence on several former State Energy projects that had been privatised by the former Yugoslavian Government.
The team were instructed by the company to identify areas of risk and opportunity that could have an impact on the success of its investment. The operation involved speaking with local business leaders and politicians to identify the operational and ownership structures of the projects; as well as political intelligence into the then current government and opposition’s energy and environmental policies.
This intelligence enabled the venture capital company to make informed investment decisions.
