The political and economic events of the 21st century have shifted political risk management from the periphery to the center of decision making in business, finance and public institutions. That is the new normal.
We believe that a comprehensive understanding of the forces that drive politics in an ever more complex business environment creates lasting value and competitive advantage.
GeoEconomica is a political risk research and advisory firm. It deals with the consequences of political and regulatory trends and events for corporate strategy and financial markets.
We look at the interaction between economics and politics and evaluate to what degree political risks inform the financial attractiveness of assets. We develop perspectives on how broader political macro trends and events impact equity, fixed income, commodity and other markets. We also take a bottom-up perspective and look at how political risks might compromise a company’s finances, whether its growth strategy is robust enough to succeed in a more complex market environment, or how its awareness of political risk gives it a competitive edge in its industry.
We identify, assess, and monitor the political risks that corporations are exposed to and develop strategies that increase corporate risk resilience. Our work supports our clients to better understand of how politics moves consumer markets, threatens the stability of supply chains and business continuity, how it affects corporate finance, governance and the balance sheet. We think through how to deal with individual risks, integrate them into the broader enterprise risk management framework, or build effective compliance policies.
The events of the year 2016 have moved macro-political and associated economic policy risks high onto the agenda for corporate executives and investors. The transformation of the global system governed by a “Pax Americana” into a multi-layered system in which power is more equally distributed amongst global players, and the consequences that this transformation causes, turns politics into an important variable for investment and broader commercial outcomes. It is therefore essential for corporate executives and investors to become more focused when integrating political and associated economic policy risks into their decision-making processes.
Geopolitical risks are very much in the mind of global corporate leaders and investors. The fragmenting geopolitical space catches globally operating corporations and investors off-guard, assuming that political would follow economic integration. The rise of geoeconomics provides the macro narrative in which more specific political events have very concrete consequences for businesses and financial markets.
Political risk management has become a mainstream area of concern for corporations and investors. Most supervisory boards maintain a high level and strategic perspective of political and broader geopolitical risks whilst management seeks to address political risk in its daily operations. Compliance departments, risk officers and committees have become more prominent in corporate decision making as they serve as first line of defence, once political risk events materialise.
