Our Impact

We help companies, investors and organisations successfully navigate a fragmenting global economy.

Every decision maker faces new challenges in a world where capital, power, talent and technology have shifted into a complex new order. Our work empowers leaders to make confident decisions in uncertain times.

Guiding a European manufacturer on the macro diligence steps needed to minimise supply-chain risk

In a fragmenting world, governments and companies are reassessing their dependence on goods, components and raw materials produced globally, leaving them vulnerable to supply-chain disruptions. We conducted a major risk review for our client, analysing its global footprint and identifying nearly 100 different macro threats to monitor for early detection of risks.
