Risk X Methodologies and Processes

Risk X has developed a set of proprietary delivery methodologies based on a solid foundation of global best practice and honed by many years of real-world experience. Our approach is to thoroughly research the context of any engagement before bringing deep subject matter knowledge to bear in defining the client requirement and delivering an optimal outcome, presented in the form of accessible and actionable intelligence.

High-level examples of our engagement process include the following:

We only use experienced consultants, people with the ability to know your business, understand it and care about what happens.


You deal with the same people, who know you and who are committed to helping you and who are not just here for the short term gain.


All our consultants are invested in our business, so we can guarantee quality and ensure that we maintain this through constant review with our clients.


We are a client-centric company; which allows us the care and attention to detail that you need to realise your goals.


Risk X insures through Lloyds of London and carries USD 5,000,000 cover for a wide range of professional liability.
