At Pozières Consulting we aim to provide our clients with the critical insights required to make informed real-world business decisions. In an increasingly globalised world, politics matters at least as much as economics to market outcomes and it is therefore imperative that business leaders understand geo-politics in the context of business and economics. To assist our clients in making sense of the ever changing geo-political landscape and the complex interconnected relationships between business and politics we publish a wide range of insights and analysis.
We routinely release Situation Reports from our analysts on the ground, providing insight and context to fast moving events and trends in specific markets or regions.

Our Case Studies section provides examples of real-world cases where our political risk insights have been used to inform our clients investments and business decisions.
Our Articles section allows our clients to keep up to date on the latest geo-political events and gain valuable insights from our analysts around the world.
