High Risk Jurisdictions

We view our overseas markets as being either High-Risk Jurisdictions, or Complex Environments.  We classify high-risk jurisdictions as those that have ongoing conflict (which could be full scale internal or external armed conflict), a significant insurgency or terrorist campaign, or countries around which piracy is prevalent.

Complex Environments

We view our overseas markets as being either High-Risk Jurisdictions, or Complex Environments.  We classify complex environments as those possessing characteristics such as:

  • Medium to high levels of political violence or a significant risk of it occurring
  • Financial complexity such as being listed as one of the top corrupt counties on the Transparency International website
  • Recent history of human rights abuses
  • There are post conflict reconstruction efforts in place in order to stabilise the country
  • Significant cultural complexities that make business difficult
