FTI Consulting Publishes 2013 Latin America Security Index

Stocks in this article: FCN

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today published the 2013 Latin America Security Index in its monthly publication, the FTI Journal , and found, overall, that political instability in the Latin American region is decreasing due to regional growth. Of the 19 countries identified in this ranking, the Latin America Security Index finds that Haiti, Venezuela, and Honduras are the most dangerous countries in Latin America, while Costa Rica, Chile and Uruguay remain the safest.

"Due to its relatively strong growth over the past years, Latin America has made some advancement as a whole in social inclusion, as well as in the fight against crime, in certain countries, leading to an improvement in public security," said Frank L. Holder, Chairman of Latin America for FTI Consulting and author of the Latin America Security Index. "Political instability, another problem that historically has plagued the region, has dropped significantly over the past several years and currently is not a major factor in public insecurity in most Latin American countries."

The Latin America Security Index analyzes current security levels in Latin American and Caribbean countries and principally is directed at companies and executives that conduct business in the region. The index provides rankings from one to five, one representing a safe country and five representing a very dangerous country. In its analysis, the index also highlights the uncertainty surrounding Venezuela's political stability following the death of former President Hugo Chavez and the growing fight against organized crime in the region.

Since 2007, FTI Consulting has provided its clients with the Latin America Security Index with the objective of minimizing potential risks related to security issues in the region. The ratings are based on official numbers from public security secretariats, local police, governments, non-governmental organizations and institutes of crime investigations.
