Seminar on The Future of Populism and Policy Risk in the Era of Trump

Date: 11 May 2017
Location: The American Club 28/F, China Resources Building 8 Jianguomen Bei Da Jie Beijing, China

Policy in the U.S. has been an important factor in determining multinational companies’ (“MNCs”) decisions when doing business in China. With increasing populist pressures in the U.S., many MNCs and investors are wondering whether this will lead to less friendly U.S.-Asia foreign relations, hence affecting their business and operations in China.

In light of this, FTI Consulting is delighted to invite you to a seminar on “The Future of Populism and Policy Risk in the Era of Trump,” where you will hear from Mitch Silber, Head of Policy Risk at FTI Consulting and former Director of Intelligence Analysis at the New York City Police Department (NYPD), and Nick Consonery, Head of Asia Policy Risk Research at FTI Consulting. They will provide analysis and insight into how populist pressures in the U.S. and Europe will shape policy risk and commercial opportunities for MNCs and asset managers in this new era.

A special focus will be on the tension between globalist and nationalist factions within the Trump Administration and what implications this will have on U.S.-Asia foreign relations.
