DUBAI, August 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Whispering Bell, a comprehensive risk management company based out of Dubai, is launching an Iran market entry program to take advantage of the thawing in relations between the US and Iran, and the impending ratification of their nuclear deal.  "Given the recent Vienna agreement, we're even more certain of the tremendous upside that the Iranian market has for many multinational corporations," said Bassam Ghellal, MD of Whispering Bell.

The recent nuclear deal between the P5+1 nations and Iran has generated a renewed interest in the Iranian market given its large almost 80 million person population and the potential to transform the economy of the Middle East. Business delegations from Asia, Europe and even the US have visited Iran in recent months to gauge opportunities and assess the viability of doing business in Iran.

To assist businesses exploring possibilities in Iran, Whispering Bell has compiled an Iran: Pre-Market Entry Handbook as a general guide to equip businesses to position themselves accordingly now that the negotiations have succeeded, understanding that some industries remain off limits in the short-term even if a permanent agreement is ratified on both sides. However, there are many prospects to be explored and evaluated that companies in different industries need to calibrate to make the most of this tremendous opportunity.

In addition, we will work closely with each company to ensure their compliance with international sanctions; and focus our efforts on a strict case by case basis. As such, we are able to offer the following services:

  •   Market entry, market research, and market topography
  •   Company due diligence and partner vetting
  •   Potential partner/distributor identification
  •   Risk assessments, contingency planning, continuity of operation planning
  •   Business impact of specific sanctions regimes
  •   Facilitated interaction with US and EU regulatory authorities
  •   Delegation planning, support, and logistics

Whispering Bell provides comprehensive risk management and market entry services to investors and companies operating at the frontiers of 21st century business.
