Everything we do is bespoke. We’ll sit down with you, listen to you and seek to understand your exact needs. Based on these conversations, we’ll tailor a strategic plan and deploy “the best team forward” that has the skills, experiences and capacities you need.
We give you a safe space where you can develop your thinking, ask questions and try out new ideas. Acting as your strategic sparring partner, we’ll help you challenge current thinking, develop new strategies and position yourself as a thought leader.
And of course, we’ll be at your side, on the ground where and when it matters. Our global team will help you implement and execute strategies, giving you access to governments, regulators, industry and investors in the world’s major markets and key capitals.

International companies, investors and organisations face a new world order shaped by unprecedented dynamics and risks that impact on business models, investment planning, the P&L, markets and operations. Today’s leaders must steer their organizations and keep control against the backdrop of this volatile environment.
We can support you in this task. Through our engagement with more than 50 experts and advisors around the globe, and our exchanges with leading think tanks, we anticipate, interpret and prioritize key geopolitical and macro dynamics.
We conduct foresight scenario planning exercises, carry out studies (such as the BGA-MAP-KPMG study, THE FUTURE OF THE EUROPEAN BANKING SECTOR: What comes after COVID-19?) and deliver tailor-made executive briefings.
Our Geopolitics as a Service model caters to sophisticated clients looking for a second opinion and organizations without the in-house capacities to cover the key macro issues of our time.
We help you promote your interests among political decision makers at the EU institutions in Brussels, in Berlin, Paris, London, Warsaw and all other European capitals, as well as the U.S. from our New York office.

We typically help our clients with issues such as market entry, growth and exit; stakeholder engagement; partner identification and vetting; CEO positioning, reputation management and thought leadership.
We support clients in major markets outside the EU and the United States, including China, Russia, India, Australia, Japan and the ASEAN countries. Our practice is led by Germany’s former ambassador to Russia and Poland, who brings decades of diplomatic experience and a clear understanding of business needs.
Governments, diplomats and political organizations around the world increasingly seek to enhance their visibility across the EU as its relevance as a global player grows. Germany has a key role to play here as Berlin’s importance in the EU has even increased since Brexit. Our experienced team of former senior diplomats advise clients in this field.
Building on our work on geopolitics and global dynamics, we apply a five-step approach to help clients adjust and transform their business model to the global environment over the coming three to five years.
