Scenario Planning

Target clients: Governments, industry trade bodies and commercial firms


Service overview

  • Brexit creates a major degree of uncertainty for firms and traditional forecasting and planning techniques are of very limited value (or can even be detrimental to good decisions). The process of creating a set of relevant, plausible, and complementary scenarios (more than the scenarios themselves) is invaluable to firms in creating and implementing effective, responsive Brexit strategies.
  • The heart of our Brexit scenario planning process is distinguishing between Driving Forces (consistent long-term trends) and Critical Brexit Uncertainties (unpredictable elements). It is not a matter of looking at a 'hard Brexit' or 'no deal' scenario; both situations in themselves have multiple ambiguous and complex situations to consider. Once these are identified, they are brought together to create a set of scenarios that reflect both what is known and what is unknown about how the environment will change.

Case Study: Northern European Bank

Brexit Partners integrated both “Brexit”  and the “future of financial services” considerations into a series of global, industry and regional scenarios. These also took account of wider considerations including competition, technology, political stability, security, financial markets, social change, ecosystem stability, impacts on key customer segments and their markets. 

Public Policy

Issues we study for our clients include:

  • Comparative analysis of proposed Brexit negotiation alternatives on legislation, regulation, public policy, competition, and markets;
  • Effects of Brexit on an organisation’s risk profile and risk appetite;

Case Study: Commercial Bank

Brexit Partners managed all aspects of public policy and stakeholder management to enable the bank to best support their customers post-Brexit. This included government meetings, definition of proposed policy opportunities and bringing together of a diverse range of stakeholders to agree a positive 'joined-up' response to Brexit.
