Risk Management

Our Risk Management Services

We have a sophisticated approach to risk management, developed over several years of delivering complex projects in high risk and fragile contexts. We believe that managing risk well is an ethical imperative, and that an ethical approach supports good risk management.

Our experts will help you: understand the context in which you operate and the impact of your programming on it; engage with communities and stakeholders; comply with legal and ethical requirements and protect your people, assets and reputation. We will provide evidence, analysis and advice to support decision making, helping you to maximise opportunities and minimise risk in fragile and complex environments.

Our Government partners and clients expect high levels of awareness, understanding and scrutiny of the risks of modern slavery, money laundering, sanctions and funding terrorism. Delivering projects in fragile and conflict-affected environments requires working within complex and often extended supply chains. Combining our own context analysis and diligence processes with checks against resources such as World-Check© as provided by Refinitiv, helps ensure Integrity and its partners meet their legal and fiduciary obligations, thereby managing reputation and compliance risks across our portfolio.
