Since its founding, Eurasia Group has expanded from covering emerging markets to include frontier and developed economies, in addition to establishing practices focused on geo-technology and energy issues. In 2006, the firm released its first annual Top Risks report, a forecast of the 10 key geopolitical risks for the year ahead. The 2011 report’s description of a G-Zero world lacking global leadership received attention at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos in 2011,[4] as well as in international media.[5][6][7]. American politics led the firm’s 2020 report,[8] which was updated and re-released in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.[9]

In 2017, Eurasia Group launched a media company called GZERO Media,[10] featuring digital programming as well as a US national public television show called GZERO World with Ian Bremmer.[11]


Eurasia Group announced a partnership with Nikko Asset Management in 2015 to incorporate political risk analysis into emerging market investment funds. According to The Wall Street Journal, "this is the first such partnership between the consultancy and an asset manager".[12] Announcing a partnership with NYSE Euronext, Eurasia Group rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on March 18, 2009.[13] In April 2018, Eurasia Group announced it will partner with Good Judgment Inc.[14] In 2005, Eurasia Group purchased Intellibridge, a political risk consultancy founded by David Rothkopf in 1999.[15]

Other partnerships include PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deutsche Bank AG, Citi Private Bank,[16] and executive education programs with New York University[17] and GLOBIS University.[18]
