Geopolitical hotspots on the board agenda

A discussion of the implications for companies operating in a geopolitically fragmented world.

As boards help their companies navigate an increasingly complex and dynamic geopolitical environment, understanding broader structural shifts in the landscape is essential. During a recent peer exchange, Fortune 100 board leaders joined professionals from KPMG and Eurasia Group to discuss the implications for companies operating in a world that is geopolitically fragmented.

Paul Knopp, chair and CEO of KPMG LLP was joined by John Rodi, leader of the KPMG Board Leadership Center, and Christine Hilt, a senior analyst with Eurasia Group’s Global Macro-Geopolitics practice.

Key takeaways

  • Understanding the geopolitical environment and its impact on the business is top of mind in the boardroom.
  • Increasing international multipolarity is creating systemic instability.
  • Board leaders noted that many companies are exploring diversification or redundancies in their supply chains.
