Headquartered in Montreal, Cercius Group is a geopolitical intelligence and strategy consulting firm founded in 2019.
Through our bespoke analysis and advisory services, Cercius Group helps enterprises, governments and international organizations understand, navigate, and hedge their exposures to high-risk and low-transparency jurisdictions.
In particular, we specialize in consulting on all matters related to the People’s Republic of China. Whether it be political leadership transitions, shifts in the country’s macroeconomic structure, or how certain firms and sectors interact with the country’s overall political-economic landscape, our team is equipped with both the linguistic and professional capabilities to analyze and provide unparalleled advice.
Notably, we have developed and continue to maintain an unprecedented database which contains the profiles of thousands of cadres in the Chinese Communist Party. This database allows us to track the career movements and promotability of these cadres. In turn, we can better forecast political turnovers in the People’s Republic and advise clients on shifts in the country’s political undercurrents.
Our products and services provide clients with the tools and expertise to confidently navigate and engage in these opaque jurisdictions – in order to fulfill Cercius Group’s mandate of safeguarding our clients’ interests and ensuring that their risks are properly hedged.
Lastly, our team comprises economists, statisticians, financial and policy analysts, as well as established academics, who all have substantial experience in dealing with China. The majority of our team has spent a substantial amount of time in the People’s Republic, as academics and professionals.
