Allowing investors, traders & news enthusiasts to take advantage of geopolitical trends and spot opportunities ahead of their competitors.
September 23, 2010 – Washington DC. The OSINT Group, a boutique private intelligence firm based in Washington DC launched today an innovative news and information service that delivers a unique combination of market news and data, geopolitical analysis and “gray research” services while offering direct access to its intelligence operations team.
Previously available only to certain governments and military clients over 40 years through its Defense & Foreign Affairs team, the Global Intelligence Report is now available to the general public, institutional investors, multi-national corporations and other sophisticated news consumers. Access to the private client service also provides proprietary information on over 170 governments, military and intelligence agencies representing 250 countries and territories worldwide.
The Global Intelligence Report delivers timely original content on important industry news from emerging markets, informative economic research, and insightful geopolitical analysis by using a combination of its human network of assets around the world and the latest technical innovations used to conduct open source intelligence gathering by governments and military establishments.
"We provide clients with tomorrow's headlines today by using a team of intelligence operations professionals, internationally acclaimed reporters and journalists, academic scholars and a collection of over 200 assets operating in capital cities around the world," said Michael Bagley, operations director for the Global Intelligence Report and president of The OSINT Group.
Additionally, to help clients better understand how Washington works and how certain legislation taking shape on Capitol Hill can affect business and industry, the Global Intelligence Report also offers insight and analysis from its political intelligence operations team in Washington DC.
"We have syndicated the cost of the traditional 'K Street’ business model because most clients - especially international clients - don't need to visit a congressman or a senator. They just need to know how certain new regulations or newly passed legislation might affect their business or their industry," Bagley said.
With a personalized consulting approach and direct phone access, the political intelligence team can provide many of the same details on important bills such as financial services, defense or energy and climate change legislation at a fraction of the cost of an expensive Washington lobbying firm.
“When it comes to analysis of global hot spots, emerging markets and geopolitical trends – whether it be pipeline politics, security and investment risk, natural resource conflicts, or internal politics that affect entire industries – the Global Intelligence Report provides a unique network of experts and assets around the world who can explain the situation simply,” Jen Alic, editorial director, and former editor-in-chief of ISN Security Watch, said.
