Overview

Eurasia Group has offices in New York, Washington, London, and Tokyo; with about 100 full-time employees. The company also employs a network of 480 experts in 65 countries in Asia, Latin America, Europe & Eurasia, and Middle East & Africa--a profile "The Economist" magazine calls "an inspiration for any academic with a seemingly useless degree in political science."

Eurasia Group is best known as a political risk advisory group, and is generally recognized to be the first to systematically bring political science as a discipline to Wall Street. [ [http://www.countryrisk.com/reviews/archives/000006.html Countryrisk.com Reviews: Eurasia Group ] ] This approach includes the Citigroup Eurasia Group Global Political Risk Index (GPRI)--the first qualitative comparative political and economic risk index designed specifically to measure stability in emerging markets. Developed over a ten-year period by experts in transitional politics and economics, the methodology provides an "early warning" system which helps anticipate critical trends and provides a measure for country capacity to withstand political, economic, security, and social shocks.

Eurasia Group services include analytical research publications and tailored consulting and advisory services, as well as direct access to Eurasia Group analysts, on political trends and their impact on business, financial markets and the foreign investment climate. Eurasia Group's 300 clients include major investment banks, institutional investors, government agencies, and multinational corporations in numerous sectors.

Eurasia Group has a global strategic alliance with PricewaterhouseCoopers, launched in March 2006 to integrate political risk assessment into risk management capabilities for multinational corporations worldwide. In 2006, Eurasia Group also began publication of the Global Risk Navigator ( [http://www.navigaterisk.com/ www.navigaterisk.com] ), a country-based political risk-assessment tool, together with The Harvard Business Review.

Acquisitions

In March 2005, Eurasia Group acquired the assets of Intellibridge, a Washington DC-based strategic advisory firm founded by former-National Security Advisor Anthony Lake and David Rothkopf. [ [http://www.highbeam.com/library/docfree.asp?DOCID=1G1:129474445&ctrlInfo=Round20%3AMode20a%3ADocG%3AResult&ao= Eurasia Group establishes Washington, DC Office; Acquires Assets of Intellibridge Corporation. - Business Wire - HighBeam Research ] ] Terms of the acquisition were not made public, though Intellibridge had received some $28 million in venture capital since being founded in 1999.

Trivia

Like Bloomberg, Eurasia Group eschews private offices; all employees sit "on the floor" to facilitate communication
