COMPANY PRESENTATION

Strategic Insight was incorporated by Zayd Soobedar in early 2015, and quickly positioned itself uniquely in the financial sector of Mauritius. Strategic Insight specializes in corporate-level credit reports, market intelligence, credit structuring and risk management. This helps international suppliers abroad as well as local parties to assess how much credit could be given to any potential partner companies in Mauritius, a key aspect of financial risk management and deal structuring.

Strategic Insight is now the sole actor in this niche in Mauritius, but covers the Indian Ocean region as well as a number of African countries. They operate in 25 countries to date, with a clientele that is evenly split between large multinationals (including leading credit insurers), banks, NBFIs, top 100 domestic companies, mid-cap corporates and local SMEs. Strategic Insight has thus seen strong growth that has made them not just a key player in facilitating trade, due diligence and risk management; it has also helped Strategic Insight unlock value in the import-export market.

In addition to credit solutions, Strategic Insight also provides market intelligence, business plans and strategy consulting to companies aiming to achieve a variety of business objectives, from penetrating new markets to turnover growth.

Strategic Insight operates in partnership with over 25 renowned risk management and financial institutions, all of which operate in Mauritius and abroad. Strategic Insight is also an accredited member of Global Credit Solutions, an international group that extends across 100 countries with distinguished members in governance, risk, compliance and quality framework.
