Covid-19 Advisory

The Covid-19 outbreak is the world’s biggest challenge since World War II. The Corona virus crisis upends the existing political and economic order in the developed world in fundamental ways that will affect all businesses, companies and sectors. This time of extreme uncertainty requires business leaders more than ever to deeply understand politics, both at home and on a global stage – because this crisis outcome will be determined by effective policy making.


BGA has set up a Covid-19 task force to support our clients addressing the implications for business models and to prepare for the time beyond Corona. 

  • In-depth coverage and monitoring of all economic, financial and fiscal aid packages and stabilization programs in Germany and the EU.
  • Transaction Advisory for companies and investors seeking the direct dialogue with the German and other European governments for support and co-investment opportunities. Focus on larger credit facilities, equity participation, granting of aid. Services include political due diligence, stakeholder mapping, process management, access to decision makers, communications, negotiations.
  • Scenario Planning for key markets: How could the Corona crisis develop in China, Europe, the United States or India? What are the macroeconomic, political and societal effects of the crisis? How will it alter markets, business models and value chains. In partnership with the Institute for Integrated Economic Research (IIER) and the  Bureau fuer Zeitgeschehen.
  • The New Global Framework: Like under a magnifying glass we are witnessing a massive acceleration of geopolitical trends and global dynamics that usually take years to unfold. Leveraging its global network of Senior Advisors, BGA has developed the webinar series “Looking Beyond Corona” to help C-Suite executives and asset managers prepare for a different world order and the implications for business and markets. Macro drivers we look at include the global power relationship between the U.S., China and Europe, the new role of the “big state”, accelerated digitization coupled with deglobalization, regulatory fragmentation, protectionism, the emerging security paradigm for health, food and energy industries as well as lasting socio-economic changes.
