Daniel is regarded as one of the world's leading political risk management experts. He is erudite and revels in contemporary history and socio-economic and political events. I always found him to be prescient when it comes to political prognostications. He is a consummate proactive professional when it comes to client relationships. He is a firm believer in the fact that his work product is a reflection of himself. Hence, his being a stickler with respect to quality control and ensuring that his or his team's work is finely crafted from start to finish. Daniel has a high sense of professionalism, work ethic, quality output and keen knowledge and experience in his chosen field of expertise. He is a true believer in the fact that in the end his unblemished reputation is and should be paramount.

Daniel is a results-oriented individual with a strong sense of loyalty. He is well respected by his peers in MIGA and the political risk insurance industry. Daniel is articulate and at ease in any setting. He met with heads of state and senior officials of corporations in carrying out his daily activities. Daniel handled delicate matters involving non-governmental organizations with interests in the environmental aspects of some of the Agency's projects. His written reports are excellent. Given the opportunity, I would hire Daniel once again.
