“Arab Spring” political monitoring
A financial investor exposed to commodity fluctuations resulting from the 2011 “Arab Spring” uprising required political intelligence and forecasting to help manage the uncertainty and hedge their positions.
R2G developed a range of sources in target countries to provide frequent updates of events as they happened, enabling the client to stay “ahead of the headlines” on major events. Additionally, R2G worked with local assets to develop possible scenarios.
The investor was able to mitigate the risks of extreme uncertainty caused by the political uprisings and better hedge its positions.
