Head of Asia

London, UK

András is Head of Risk Advisory’s Asia practice and is based in London. He has worked with various regional teams of Risk Advisory for over nine years, overseeing and conducting complex due diligence investigations globally. He has also worked closely with global corporate clients and their law firms on improving compliance programmes for companies under monitorship.  

András specialises in investigations in the energy sector: advising clients on issues ranging from the provenance of oil and gas assets, to integrity risks of gas and power distribution network operators as well as renewable energy developers. 

Prior to joining Risk Advisory, András worked in the energy sector in Central and Eastern Europe, focusing on business development in the upstream and natural gas trading sectors in Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Central Asia.

Project highlights:

  • Managed hundreds of business intelligence and market entry investigations in Eastern and Western Europe, the Balkans, countries of the former Soviet Union, and all major countries of the Asia Pacific region. 
  • Led a three-month political risk mapping investigation in the energy sector of a country in the Western Balkans. This involved identifying key players in the local oil and gas sectors and their connections to government officials and politicians in both governing and opposition parties. The findings informed the client’s exit strategy from the country. 
  • Managed seconded resources to the compliance department of a large international telecom company. Took part in the review of compliance and onboarding processes for third parties and risk rating counterparties in Eastern Europe, MENA, and Asia, 
  • Oversaw a complex FCPA focused review in the media sector spanning several countries of Central Asia and Western Europe, which identified historical connections between the owners of the business and politically exposed persons.
