Understanding the Risks We Face in an Increasingly Unstable World

To successfully navigate global markets, business leaders must analyze economic risks when considering investments or market exposure. However, one must look beyond per-capita income or economic growth data in both the US and abroad, to objectively assess how geopolitical forces are creating risks and opportunities shaping markets in unexpected ways. Author and acclaimed geopolitical expert, Ian Bremmer covers today’s top risks to make sense of a compounding polycrisis impacting organizations on the global stage. By blending political and economic risk analysis, this keynote provides treasury and finance professionals with the perspective to make savvier investment decisions and better prepare for the future.
