Populism, hostility to global trade and the menace of interstate conflict: in the age of social volatility, businesses are no longer isolated from politics – they are directly affected by them. Teneo Intelligence helps business leaders to anticipate and navigate the challenges arising from political developments.
We are a global political risk advisory service providing timely, market-relevant and forward-looking counsel. We help business leaders understand political events and their implications for corporations and financial markets – from a company’s local footprint to its global supply chains. We identify political drivers that move markets and forecast outcomes and scenarios. In this way, Teneo Intelligence helps clients to incorporate political futures into their business and investment strategies.
Rigorous research and analysis form the basis of our work. Our highly-skilled team of analysts are experienced political scientists with advanced degrees in political economy, international relations and neighboring disciplines. Having lived and worked in the regions they cover, our experts speak the relevant languages, continue to travel regularly and maintain a dense network of contacts on the ground. It is this unique expertise which sets Teneo Intelligence apart from generic research providers.
Our written research briefings are the backbone of our political risk coverage: short, concise, and event-driven. Our country analysts constantly assess the business implications of political developments in their regions. Clients in corporations and the financial markets receive our analysis of new events instantly, with a focus on implications and developments going forward – strictly no reporting.
Available via email, our dedicated client portal and an app for mobile devices, our brief Quick Take alerts provide immediate reactions to political developments as they occur. Updates are more in-depth pieces looking ahead at upcoming political events, their most likely outcome and the implications. Every Monday morning, our Weekly Political Compass provides an overview of the global events to watch in the coming week – and our analysts’ take on them. We also offer regular, tailor-made briefings which delve into specific sectors, markets and/or issues and concerns for individual companies and investors.
Our political risk analysts possess deep country expertise and unique in-country networks to provide targeted counsel to strengthen our clients’ strategic decision-making. They stand ready to support corporations and investors every step of the way.
Teneo Intelligence provides direct access to our global platform of analysts – by email, individual phone conversations, conference calls, and in-person meetings. The exact nature of the interaction depends on each client’s needs: a discussion of the political backdrop and key decision-makers ahead of a CEO’s high-level meetings in a specific country; a sparring partner for a critical discussion of political developments and issues specific to your investment strategy in a given region; an experienced public speaker to enrich your panel or dinner event; or simply a quick reality check on political events dominating the news this morning.
Our analysts will run you through the complex politics of their countries, disentangling drivers and discussing potential outcomes. Their mission: to help you anticipate the business implications of political developments.
Political risk used to be an issue for financial investors in emerging markets, but this is no longer the case. Today, politics is an important driver in all markets, including in developed economies.
Teneo Intelligence’s long-term analysis identifies emerging trends, allowing corporations to avoid risks and benefit from global social and economic shifts before they materialize. We help multinational CEOs, investors and companies to position themselves as thought leaders on pressing political issues and as global ambassadors of their industry.
Working closely with our clients, we assist with comparative market assessments to identify new opportunities and potential risks. We conduct deep-dive country evaluations as part of a due diligence process and provide scenario analyses of risks that may have material implications on a firm’s operations, assets, reputation or personnel across the globe. Our analysts help you understand the political priorities of key stakeholders, influencers and decision-makers in a country or region. In this way, Teneo Intelligence helps businesses to strike the right tone with publics and decision-makers, even in the most politically challenging operating environments.
The regulatory environment in the financial industry is changing fast. Teneo Intelligence maintains a relentless focus on the regulatory needs of our clients. This is underpinned by our established track record as an independent research provider with no execution.
As the industry gets accustomed to MiFID II, we work closely with our clients to guarantee compliance and quality control for all our research. The corner stone of our model is a clear pricing schedule for our research and advisory services. Clients can access our research via their preferred distribution channels.
With our ability to track readership statistics and valuation metrics, we can demonstrate the value of our research at any time. Our dedicated account managers coordinate the delivery of services according to your specific requirements in a timely and professional manner.
