Asia politics and policy

Unpacking the unique risks and opportunities of doing business in Asia

We support Asian corporates and investors in tackling market access challenges and realising investment opportunities in Europe. In turn, we help European and American multinationals to develop strategies that align with the political and policy landscapes in Asia. We work on long-term policy and reputational challenges, politically-driven events and on specific transactions. Our clientele includes multinationals, Asian family-owned businesses, state-owned companies, start-ups and funds.

Regulatory insight and analysis

Body

Our clients rely on our market insights, global network and deep understanding of regulated industries that are critical for robust political and regulatory due diligence. Our process is driven by top-down policy analysis based on key stakeholder interviews and primary material analysis. We provide reliable diligence reports examining forward-looking political, policy or regulatory risks and opportunities that may impact the underlying commercial viability of business operations and future investments.

ESG advisory

As ESG becomes increasingly interwoven within the criteria and approach of institutional investors globally, our team helps clients monitor, analyse and anticipate ESG trends and issues that would have a material impact on their business. We have helped corporates to benchmark their business practices against the relevant international standards, providing a roadmap for them to improve their access to green finance. We have also helped clients track and understand various ESG frameworks to improve their stakeholder engagement strategy, including providing management support for investor communications.
