About Eurasia Group
The Fat Tail is written by two of the world's foremost authorities on political risk management-Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group, and Preston Keat, the firm's research director. Eurasia Group is the world's leading global political risk research and consulting firm. Since 1998, it has helped clients make informed business decisions in countries where understanding the political landscape is critical.
While Eurasia Group's name reveals its early focus on the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, today its research platform is global and organized into four regional practice groups - Asia, Europe & Eurasia, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Additionally, the Comparative Analytics and Global Energy & Natural Resources practice groups cover issues that cross borders.
The firm continuously monitors political, economic, social, and security developments around the world and forecasts their impact on countries, regions, companies, and financial markets. In partnership with Citi Global Wealth Management, it also produces the Global Political Risk Index (GPRI), which is the first comparative political and economic index specifically designed to measure stability in emerging markets. By identifying key political drivers, analyzing global trends, highlighting risk trigger points, and building comprehensive strategic and tactical scenarios, Eurasia Group assists clients in reducing their exposure to risk in potentially volatile regions. Clients include a wide variety of financial institutions, multinational corporations, and government agencies.
Eurasia Group's research analysts are trained social scientists with post-graduate degrees, extensive professional experience, and a diverse range of language capabilities. Headquartered in New York, it also has offices in Washington and London, as well as a vast network of experts around the world.
