InvestAssure is a research and consulting group, providing advice and support for responsible business, sourcing and investment in Asia and other emerging markets. We monitor and investigate environmental, health and safety, social and other ethical aspects of investment portfolios, supply chains, and business partnerships.
We are based in Oxford, UK, with partners in Hong Kong, Beijing and Manila. Our research and consulting network extends across southeast Asia. InvestAssure was formed in 2009 as an offshoot of the SourceAsia consulting business.
