Risk Intelligence to triple profits by 2016

Danish security analyst firm Risk Intelligence, which consults carriers and other stakeholders on piracy, anticipates strong growth in the next two years, the company's CEO Hans Tino Hansen tells ShippingWatch.

Risk Intelligence has a firm goal in place for the next two years. Revenue must be doubled and the profit tripled at the company whose work consists of consulting customers about dangers in the maritime sphere. Risk Intelligence does not publish its results, but the company's gross profit came to USD 866,000 in 2013 - a 539.8 percent improvement, to be exact, from 2012, according to Danish newspaper Børsen's survey of gazelle companies.

"Our growth primarily comes from - and will continue to come from - an expansion of our business on existing customers. We do of course also see growth in the number of new customers, but we're primarily working for our existing customers. Our customers cover a total of 12 percent of the global fleet," Risk Intelligence CEO Hans Tino Hansen tells ShippingWatch.
