Geoeconomics: the new context for doing business in the world

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.

Getting serious about political risk management

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.

Dealing with political risk

Geopolitical risks travel much more easily across the international system and into the global economy. A shifting geopolitical scene will have immediate consequences for corporations and investors. It is therefore vital for investors and corporate strategists to anticipate the outcomes produced by the policy arenas that are relevant to them. In so doing, we believe it is essential to keep a few points in mind.
