Kroll Institute

The Kroll Institute is dedicated to delivering insights, conducting research and leading interactive forums that help business leaders stay ahead of and manage multidimensional challenges related to risk, governance and growth. Our Fellows are influential experts, who bring diverse viewpoints and deep experience to inform the complex business challenges faced by senior decision-makers at the world’s leading organizations.

Kroll Institute Fellows serve as thought leaders with the goal of helping organizations tackle their most complex and critical challenges by providing deep analysis of and insight into current issues, allowing for timely, informed business decisions. The Institute develops and delivers insights in a variety of formats, from live discussions to published content, ensuring that our views are grounded in comprehensive, objective and factual information. By exploring how critical issues intersect, we can help better identify the consequences and opportunities that these intersections could generate.

The Institute’s global network of Fellows realize that business leaders deal with multiple challenges simultaneously. Our current focus areas reflect our goal to translate expertise into actionable ideas.  These areas of focus are:

  • Risk (Geopolitical, Financial, Security, among others)
  • Governance
  • Economics and Growth
  • Public Health
  • Environmental and Social Issues
  • Cybersecurity and Technology

These topics will remain priorities for organizations for years to come, even as new developments reshape our understanding of them. Today’s technology-enabled interconnectedness means organizations, governments and individuals face complex and dynamic risks and opportunities. The Kroll Institute applies truth, transparency and good governance to provide the necessary context to explore them together.
