Political Risk Analysis and Consulting Firm

Our fact based analysis and expertise in the region will illuminate the optimal action plan.



Expand your business, complete the mission with actionable foresight, and manage political risk with the right strategy.


Political and Geopolitical Risk

Understanding Political Risk in the target country, and in MENA at large, is an essential part of a successful business strategy and of sound policy.


Welcome to

iStrategic International

Identifying crucial political, security and socio-economic risks require culturally sensitive eyes, connections and regional intelligence trained to translate signs into actionable insight, and insight to opportunity. We contend that having a proactive strategy is indispensable for today’s American and international corporations, business ventures, government agencies and investment missions in the MENA region.

iStrategic is a political risk analysis and consulting firm providing specialized guidance on Middle East and North Africa affairs to the private sector and U.S. government.

Cultural Training

If you are willing to expand your business venture, and invest in foreign markets, especially in MENA region, you need to take a serious approach towards intercultural competence.

Country Analysis

iStrategic's country analysis reports and consultations go beyond a conventional in-depth country profile.


At iStrategic We Believe

Traditional approaches to political risk and country analysis in MENA have under-served corporations and investment firms seeking to expand into the Middle East and North African market.

American and European businesses interested in the MENA market can not afford to overlook political risks. The region suffers from structural instabilities and disruptive political risks, but is also ripe with profitable opportunities. Understanding the risks a company might face in the region will help it plan ahead and increase its capabilities to mitigate possible operational threats, and optimize the desired outcome.

A successful business operation in the region needs to account for political and geopolitical risks, and prepare a proactive political risk management strategy.

At iStrategic We Deliver

As a political risk analysis and consulting firm we deliver actionable insights and risk analysis based on facts and sound interpretation of data and intelligence. Whether through one on one consultation, briefings, reports or executive summaries, we ensure our clients have a clear and up to date understanding of the current and future political risks in the region.

We offer our clients an insider’s perspective because we are proficient in the political, socioeconomic drivers and various local languages: Arabic, Turkish, Farsi and Hebrew. We are connected to trusted in-country associates, and we provide the highest standard in rigorous research at the macro and micro/industry level. Risk management strategies position our clients to extract the maximum value from our consultations, briefings and political risk analysis reports.
