NRCI monitors international economic drivers and trends, and geopolitical dynamics impacting and changing risk equations in countries, regions and globally. These observations form how we define and form Norwegian Risk Forum themes and programs every year. NRCI is experienced in managing events and this is the 12th annual Norwegian Risk Forum we host this year. During Norwegian Risk Forum you experience an international geopolitical and strategic event with high-quality speakers with presentations and panel-debates that are highly useful, interesting and relevant for international investments, business operations, NGO operations and for financial firms operating or managing investments internationally.

We received high appraisals and strong feedback from participants who attended Norwegian Risk Forum over the last 12 years since we hosted the first conference in 2010. We welcomed participants from leading positions from a range of industries and sectors from the corporate world, financial firms, international companies, NGOs, investor groups and public entities. Some participants informed us that they changed their international business strategies after attending Norwegian Risk Forum, and others ventured into new global expansion plans after receiving new and highly informative insights during Norwegian Risk Forums.

Norwegian Risk Forum is a most useful, informative and interesting geopolitical event for business leaders, leaders of organizations or risk departments, financial firms and international banks, and other global organizations planning international expansion or who need to monitor global geopolitical and strategic developments. Norwegian Risk Forum is now a world-leading annual geopolitical event and became a tradition for those who attended. Participants return year after year, and we value service very highly and follow up all participants closely. We welcome you to Norwegian Risk Forum 2021 on October 21.
