Forward Risk was tasked by an investor client with conducting a detailed overview of the impact of US sanctions on Iran vis-a-vis Chinese companies, focusing specifically on exemptions and waivers, and the process by which companies might be able to obtain these.

Our Work

In addition to open-source research, we leveraged key relationships in the DC area to secure interviews with sanctions, arms control, and compliance experts within the US government and at top US think tanks.

This allowed Forward Risk to gather crucial insight into policy planning and decision making surrounding a topic with significant global political and commercial ramifications.


Our unique access to subject matter expertise, flexible approach, and frequent client updates were essential to ensuring that the client obtained information necessary to their specific business interests amidst a complex political backdrop.
