Risk Advisory Group opens office in Dubai

Business, Security
(BI-ME) - The Risk Advisory Group (TRAG), leading international corporate investigations, business intelligence and security consultancy, today announced the formal opening of its new office in Dubai. Based in Knowledge Village and headed by Gary Wood, former Director of Operations of TRAG's political and security risk subsidiary Janusian, the office supports clients' business, regulatory risk and security needs in the Middle East. It also acts as the regional hub for TRAG's wider Middle East practice and will support Janusian's burgeoning security and safety training programs for companies operating in the region.
The office will be supported by Martin Stone, head of TRAG's Middle East & North Africa practice, and Dr David Claridge, Managing Director of Janusian Security Risk Management. Gary Wood said: "Our new office has a strong, experienced team who are well-placed in an area with high business potential." "Dubai is among the fastest-growing cities in the world, with huge development in finance, construction, telecoms and tourism. Excellent communications, transportation and business infrastructure have attracted thousands of companies to a growing number of well-run free zones, with the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) being the latest example.
"However, these are potentially intricate markets and Western business practices can conflict with local law, local custom and, in some instances, religion, which add new layers of complexity to the business planning process. The new office allows TRAG to offer on-the-ground service levels to existing and new clients who are increasingly basing their regional operations in Dubai," he said.
"This development continues TRAG's international expansion and we are pleased to add such a valuable region to our portfolio, at a point where businesses increasingly need our services as they are entering new, higher-risk markets."
