Case Study

An assessment of political, macroeconomic, and operational risk in Sierra Leone

Overview 

Our client has a large mining stake in West Africa and needed to understand country risk in Sierra Leone for a potential large transport project. 

Work 

We provided a country risk outlook for Sierra Leone assessing the political, macroeconomic and operational risks for a large infrastructure project. We mapped the key decision makers in the country that would have influence over the success of the project, consulting with our network in West Africa and elsewhere to inform the assessment. We presented to, and discussed the findings with, senior management. 

Impact

The client was able to understand the risks of the large capex project ($1bn+) and to take an informed decision about feasibility.
