Top Track 250

As its name suggests, this consultancy helps firms to manage risk, whether that be political, security-related, or connected to company integrity. It is based in London but has 36 offices worldwide. In 2011, NVM Private Equity invested £12m for a 20% stake. Chief executive Richard Fenning, 52, saw profits hit £22.1m in 2014, driven in part by high demand for its services in Iraq.
