Preparing for the future requires an in-depth assessment of emerging risks. Technological revolution, climate change, increasing geopolitical instability, and concerns about rising healthcare costs and other issues make it harder for policymakers, businesses, and individuals to anticipate coming changes, challenges, and opportunities. Perception shapes our collective vision of the world and influences decision-making.
AXA, a multinational insurance company, sought to highlight experts' perceptions of future risks by conducting a structured survey of more than 1,700 specialists from 58 countries, selected for their risk expertise. This year, in order to encompass global geopolitical trends and shifts in the analysis of the global risk landscape, Eurasia Group partnered with AXA on this project. The insights coming from this panel of risk experts, combined with AXA's inhouse risk management capabilities and Eurasia Group's unique take on geopolitical themes, offer an unparalleled vantage point to look at risks on the horizon.
