New York-based political risk consultants Eurasia Group and Citi Private Bank are teaming up: through briefings, conferences and research products, the pair intend to connect Eurasia’s analysis with the investment process to deliver a comprehensive view of how political and financial factors interact to affect investments.

Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group, said: “As capital moves increasingly into emerging and frontier markets, decision makers need better methods to weigh political risk against financial reward. This relationship will couple political analysis into broader investment analysis.”

The flagship product is the monthly publication Perspectives on Geopolitics, featuring Eurasia’s global political risk index, claimed as the only risk assessment tool on Wall Street that offers detailed analysis of political, social, security and economic developments tailored to meet the needs of emerging market investors.

The countries covered in the GPRI include Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Colombia, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and Venezuela.
