Thank you for your interest in our Events to Watch for 2018! We are excited to offer you an executive summary of the research.

FSG’s 2018 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 2018 and our most recent Regional Outlooks.

This flagship research provides an in-depth overview of 9 global events, as well as over 20 regional events to monitor throughout the year, including:

  • Eurozone banking crisis
  • Trump immigration crackdown
  • South Africa ruling party rift
  • Algeria currency crash
  • Disputes flare on Asian seas
  • …and many more!

While our base-case scenarios for 2018 indicate a broad-based, if fragile, global economic recovery, downside risks remain prevalent and should continue to add urgency to developing capabilities for contingency planning and market monitoring.

Avoiding complacency will be key to mitigating unexpected shocks. Political, economic, security, and technological threats will need to be carefully monitored. Multinationals need to focus attention on disruptive events that will have a severe impact on market potential and the operational landscape of their businesses. Companies that are positioned to outperform build contingency plans for high-impact events, allowing them to adapt during periods of volatility and take advantage of new opportunities
