Figuring out how politics affects your business is what we do—all day, every day.
Our clients range from macro hedge funds to institutional investors, from family companies to the world's largest multinational corporations. What they all share is a desire to better manage the risks and
opportunities that flow from political and geopolitical events.
We take a structured approach to understanding these challenges, and we provide our clients with tools not only to anticipate and manage political risks, but also to profit from opportunities. We develop relationships with each client individually and tailor our delivery to their unique needs and preferences.
Global political volatility affects businesses and asset classes around the world. Our regional teams cover every region of the globe, providing structured views on key events and themes in the form of concise daily briefs, tailored reports, conference calls, in-depth presentations, and client workshops. Our qualitative research is supported by data and proprietary analytics tools that measure the levels and trends in countries' political stability, as well as their political capacity to manage external shocks. Our transnational practices – including Emerging Markets Strategy, Comparative Analytics, Global Strategy, and Global Macro Politics – identify and assess trends and interactions across regions.
