Overview

FSG’s 2019 events to watch are the downside and upside scenarios that multinational companies should evaluate to ensure that their strategic plans are resilient when the unexpected occurs. This report is a companion to the base-case scenarios outlined in our Global Outlook for 2019 and our most recent Regional Outlooks.

While our base-case scenarios for 2019 indicate a broad-based global economic recovery, downside risk events are interconnected in ways that can lead to far-reaching, abrupt shifts in the global demand environment. The threat of new trade barriers imposed by the US is tangible, and major economies face domestic fragilities that could significantly impact global trade flows. The interconnectedness of our events to watch for 2019 should add urgency for multinational companies to engage in scenario-analysis exercises and develop robust contingency plans.

Frontier Strategy Group is a leading information and advisory services firm that works with over 200 multinational clients operating in emerging markets globally. Our analysts and commentary are regularly featured in outlets such as the Harvard Business Review, Financial Times, CNBC, Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal.

Unlike most research providers, our reports and analysis focus on the issues that matter most for international business. Rather than  cover high-level macroeconomic analysis, our reports interpret how geopolitical and economic trends impact key business activities at a global, regional, national, and sub-national level.

Our unparalleled access to 5,000+ client executives leading businesses around the globe fuels our research agenda, surfacing hot topics and trend analysis that leads the curve, rather than follows it
