Teneo Intelligence to Team with EY Geostrategic Business Group

January 16, 2017 - New York City - Teneo Intelligence, the political and policy risk advisory division of the global CEO advisory firm Teneo, today announced that it will be teaming with EY’s newly created Geostrategic Business Group, aimed at actively working with organizations and institutions globally to understand the business implications of the geopolitical landscape and help them navigate it, manage existing global operations, and identify new business opportunities.

Mark Weinberger, EY Global Chairman and CEO, says: “Geopolitical and macroeconomic instability and risk are currently among the top concerns for EY clients around the world, yet many still need to take active steps to address the issues. We are already helping large multinationals make informed decisions using a broad approach that embeds geopolitical insights and our global and local knowledge.”

Kevin Kajiwara, Co-President of Teneo Intelligence, says: “Geopolitics is reordering the global operating environment, and a clear-eyed appraisal of political actors’ motivations and limitations will be key to contextualizing the opportunities presented by the evolution of Globalization. Close monitoring of the issues playing out, coupled with a dispassionate analysis of what it means longer term, are more critical than ever for the ongoing success of today’s multi-national corporations and the people that run them.”

Jonathan Shames, EY Global Geostrategic Business Group Leader says: “We are experiencing unprecedented levels of political and economic change around the world and geopolitical uncertainty is a key disruptive force impacting business decisions. Yet, 89% of respondents to the recent EY Growth Barometer survey see growth opportunities in today’s uncertainty. It is clear that organizations, now more than ever, need to understand the business implications of geopolitical change and integrate that into the decision making at their highest levels. Our group will actively work with businesses to assess global risk, as well as identify the opportunities that emerge from geopolitical disruption.”

Teneo Intelligence is the global and region-specific political and policy risk advisory division of Teneo, a global CEO advisory firm. With senior analysts and advisors based around the world with deep experience in political and policy analysis, Teneo Intelligence advises multinational corporations and investors to manage political and policy exposures to counter risks or profit from opportunities.
