Paramount Group

Paramount Group has an interesting business, as is explained in this article:

For example, Paramount Group specialises in 'peacekeeping packages' tailored to help developing countries meet UN equipment, training and logistic requirements. According to the company's website, Paramount Group covers a niche in the market which US PMSCs often overlook: UN troop‐contributing countries which are eager to mount a battalion for UN deployment, sometimes motivated by the UN reimbursement system.
