Strategic Insight Group (SIG) is a private intelligence firm serving investors, corporations, and law firms.
SIG employs a unique zero-based analysis. Analysts assemble multiple data points according to tested protocols, drawing upon both open sources (OSINT) and close-source, in-country human intelligence (HUMINT). Analysis of the data suggests hypotheses, which are then tested through further rounds of data collection. SIG's zero-based analysis works organically upward from the data itself, resisting any prior assumptions and taking nothing for granted. Our intelligence process systematically resists biases and enables us to identify discontinuity as well as continuity.
It is the opposite of conventional thinking.
SIG’s primary clients are investors, ranging from family firms and high-net-worth individuals to private equity firms and pension funds. SIG’s clients include several of the 20 largest investors in the world. Services include investigating potential investments (individuals or entities, and their competitors); analyzing markets and political contexts; and performing pre-transactional due diligence and post-transactional monitoring, including “indications and warnings” monitoring of industrial, political, regulatory, and security conditions.
SIG works for a range of public and private companies (often portfolio companies of investor clients), providing market intelligence (market entry and expansion); competitor, customer, and consumer analysis; investigation of potential partners or adversaries and their companies, including acquisition targets; anti-money-laundering and anti-corruption investigation; situational intelligence on problems; and political and regulatory intelligence.
SIG specializes in asset discovery and in intelligence on opposing litigants (to establish histories of persons and entities, links and connections, activity and behavioral patterns, strengths and vulnerabilities).
