Smart Guidance in an Uncertain World

Geostrategic Advisory & Government Affairs at the intersection of Politics, Business and Capital Markets.

In today’s world, company leaders and investors who seek growth and value protection must have a holistic risk management strategy. This will help them hedge against unprecedented geopolitical tensions while benefitting from the new investment opportunities the 2020s offer.

On the risk side, Russia’s war against Ukraine has destroyed the post-1990 peace order in Europe and is causing a sharp rise in inflation, energy, and commodity prices. It’s possible we’re at the start of a global decoupling and will see increased competition for global influence between autocracies and democracies. The great power relationship between the U.S. and China is the critical variable to watch in this respect.

At the same time, Covid-19 is far from over, global supply chains are strangled, and public debt is reaching new highs worldwide. Add more cyber threats, fake news, and ongoing pressure to decarbonize and digitize and it becomes clear that CEOs and boards are having to navigate a new global order, mitigate these risks and incorporate them into their business models, strategies, transaction planning, investments, and communications.

However, opportunities arise from a new U.S. leadership, a more sovereign Europe, game-changing technological advances, the transformation towards sustainability, and the billions of public funding now available for clean energy, digitization, and infrastructure projects. For businesses to benefit, they must position themselves strategically now.
