Why Use Latin Intelligence Corporation?
We give you what you need to know, not what you might want to hear, but only after we listen
to your concerns, needs, and objectives.
You need customized risk analysis, verifiable data, and innovative modeling that respond to your specific needs and enable you to identify, evaluate, and manage the risks inherent in doing business in Latin America, or when the U.S. Government makes policy toward Latin America.
You need to know what is “really going on” in politics, economics, culture, and regulatory framework in your country of interest. But this is not sufficient. You need granular intelligence at the national, state, and municipal levels to get the complete picture you need to make fact-based, informed decisions.
We help you navigate the often-turbulent waters of economic crises, shifting government policy, contract insecurity, socio-political-cultural changes, nationalism, and increasing foreign competition from China, India, Russia, the EU, Japan, and the Middle East.
We don’t take on projects we cannot deliver on deadline, on budget, and to our standards of quality and performance.
We ensure integrity and confidentiality. This means, we will not recycle your findings and reports.
How We Consult with You
Once we ensure we are on the same page with you regarding timetables, budgets, and your expectations, we zero in on the make-or-break political, economic, and cultural issues you need to know and evaluate.
We help you identify actual or potential risks others do not see, or are not thinking about.
We keep you informed on an on-going basis of our results. This enables you to know where we are going with your project, what we are finding, and whether adjustments are necessary.
We give you early warnings to save you time, money and effort. We are the first to tell you whether, in our informed opinion, you need to stay on track, switch strategy, or move on to a different project or market.
