Geopolitical & country risk

Forward looking, strategic insight on key markets and global issues

Geopolitics, climate change, political instability, economic pressures, and threats to human rights have become more intertwined than ever, and the impacts on trade, operating environments and supply chains are accelerating. Traditional methods of assessing these issues in isolation are no longer valid. In this era of complexity and uncertainty, a holistic approach to these mutually reinforcing global risks must combine cutting-edge analytics, expert analysis, and data science. This is central to formulating long-lasting corporate and investment strategies that can successfully identify opportunity and enhance resilience.

We combine deep expertise across political, environmental, human rights and economic issues with an unparalleled portfolio of global risk data and advanced forecasting capabilities. Through our independent, objective, and actionable risk intelligence, we enable clients to identify emerging risks, understand how, where and why high-impact events will affect them and put mitigation strategies in place to protect and improve their commercial performance.
