Understanding the political environment in which a company operates is vital for safeguarding its investments and judging the market’s future potential. The same holds true for development agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Too often, analysts concentrate on GDP, as if that alone is already a solid indication of a market’s future. Yet, political analysts often fail to take the economy into account at all. At Manatee Global Advisors, we follow a comprehensive approach that takes into account both sides, delivering an inclusive picture of markets and what drives them. Based on various indicators and a thorough understanding of social factors, we provide our clients with a superior understanding of risks, whether political, economical or social.
