Every year in January, Eurasia Group, KPMG's Global Alliance partner, publishes its Top Risks report that forecasts key geopolitical risks for the year ahead. This year's report is available here: https://www.eurasiagroup.net/issues/top-risks-2020
The world has gotten used to growing levels of geopolitical risk over the last decade, but this report argues that 2020 is a tipping point. For the first time ever, the #1 risk for the year is US domestic politics, with US institutions likely to be tested in unprecedented ways in 2020. Meanwhile, all eyes will be on the future of the US-China relationship, which is at the heart of risk #2 (on technological decoupling between the two countries) and risk #3 (their clash over national security, influence, and values). Beyond these two superpowers, the report also focuses on Modi's India, the role of multinational corporations, the new leadership in Europe, and the rising economic impact of climate change, among other hot issues.
Our event on March 10th will be a unique opportunity to hear directly from Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, Senior Advisor for Eurasia Group, about the political risk trends and hotspots most likely to move markets in the year ahead. This seminar will also give us a chance to address the relevance of the top 10 risks for Norwegian companies.
