Armstrong Wolfe announces a collaboration with Control Risks

Armstrong Wolfe is delighted to announce that the global risk consultancy firm Control Risks [] has become a Strategic Alliance Partner of Armstrong Wolfe with effect from January 1st 2023.

Control Risks focuses on helping its clients assess and then mitigate geopolitical, reputational, security, cyber and operational risks. Founded in 1975 and now with 36 offices and over 3,500 personnel around the world, it works extensively with Fortune 500 clients across a multitude of sectors, including Financial Services. The firm has a strong heritage within crisis management, which has since evolved to ensuring its clients can proactively also become secure, resilient and compliant, and that they are equipped with the information and analysis they need to make better commercial decisions across a wide range of issues. It is acknowledged as one of the world’s preeminent non-financial risk consultancies.

Managing Partner of Control Risks’ Washington D.C. office Mike Wolff said:

“I am thrilled at the opportunity for Control Risks to work with both Armstrong Wolfe and the global membership that they have evolved within the global Chief Operating Officer and Chief Controls Officer communities in Investment Banking & Asset Management to discuss and tackle the wide range of non-financial risk issues that those institutions face. We believe the world is facing some extraordinary pressures at the moment which are only set to multiply and intensify, and it is the COO and CCO community that is regularly being asked to originate and deliver solutions at an organizational level; we hope to assist with that journey as we are doing with many of our other global clients.

On a different level I am also delighted to be working once again with Maurice Evlyn-Bufton in supporting on a personal basis his charitable initiative in Bosnia, the Gorazde Childrens Fund. It’s where we first met 28 years ago, and I am deeply impressed by the difference his charity has made in recent years to what was once a war-torn community”.

CEO of Armstrong Wolfe Maurice Evlyn-Bufton said:

“Whilst we were mobilising the COO and Chief Control Officer Community before the pandemic to look more holistically at threat management, Covid promoted further thought and the Russian – Ukrainian crisis accelerated the need to look at the framework and approach to managing nonfinancial risk. To this end, we could not wish for a better partner than Control Risks to partner to help the COO community navigate the unchartered waters of the very different and challenging world we have found ourselves

Control Risks’ insights at all levels will enable us to add value to the COO as they look to define, translate, and manage these risks. The quality of Control Risk at all levels, from analyst to partner gives us great confidence this strategic alliance will go from strength to strength as we move into 2023 and beyond.”
