Top 10 Geopolitical Risks 2022

Click here to view the webinar today:

You are cordially invited to our annual webinar on Top 10 Geopolitical Risks in 2022: Looking Ahead. 

Every year in January, Eurasia Group, KPMG's global alliance partner, publishes its Top Risks report which forecasts key geopolitical risks for the year ahead. This year's report is available here.

Following a year 2021 that was overwhelmingly about economic responses to the Covid-19 pandemic, 2022 will see the United States (risk #3) and China (risk #4) turning inwards to focus on domestic challenges. Less leadership on the global stage will mean less coordination when the world is facing two historic crises: the Covid-19 pandemic (risk #1) and climate change (risk #7). 

In this context, a handful of technology firms are exercising a form of sovereignty in the digital space (risk #2), while consumers and employees are putting more pressure on multinational corporations and governments (risk #9). This year will also see tensions increase around Russia’s relationship with the West (risk #5), Iran’s nuclear program (risk #6), and the deepening of Turkey’s economic woes (risk #10).  Around the world, enduring tragedies will keep unfolding, from Afghanistan and Myanmar to Ethiopia, Haiti, and Venezuela (risk #8). 

Our online event on February 8th will be a unique opportunity to hear directly from our speakers from Eurasia Group and KPMG 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. 


— Naz Masraff from Eurasia Group will present the Top 10 Geopolitical Risks of 2022.  
— Indra Thevoz and Mathias Hindar of KPMG Norway will speak on the Bottom Line for Norwegian businesses.
— Discussion, Q&A

We look forward to seeing you online on Tuesday February 8th.
