EXX AFRICA is a specialist intelligence firm providing analysis and forecasts on political, security, and economic risk across all African countries. The company was founded in 2015 by Dr Robert Besseling and has since become a leading risk advisory and consultancy with a broad network of clients ranging from DFIs, banks, traders, corporates, and insurers, to governments and military forces worldwide.
Apart from operating a best-in-class subscription platform on commercial risk intelligence, EXX Africa also provides due diligence and corporate investigations services across all African jurisdictions. We embrace the continent’s dynamics and serve our wide-ranging client base to mitigate their risk exposure to Africa’s fast-changing political and economic developments.
We pride ourselves on providing timely, reliable, and well-informed intelligence that is sourced from an extensive on-the-ground network and rigorously applied to proprietary analytical processes. We prepare our clients to enter new markets in Africa, to recognise and engage senior stakeholders, to identify key threats and opportunities, to monitor indicators of risk, to assess their socio-economic impact, and to manage expectations and meet local requirements.
We believe that the value of intelligence is in its factor of surprise, so we endeavour to always tell our clients something new and striking. We are incorporated in Mauritius, and based in Johannesburg and London, with a network of trusted analysts and dedicated sources across the African continent and beyond.
