Marcel Baartman is a former senior economist within Clingendael. Trained as a macro-economist, Marcel focuses on the geostrategic risks for corporates and financial institutions. The combination and dependencies between macro-economic, geopolitical and geo-economic issues are thereby focal points. Having worked for over twenty years in the financial markets, Marcel is experienced in identifying risks and consequences of economic and geopolitical developments for companies and financial markets.
Important building blocks for his geostrategic risk analysis are scenarios, trends, exposures, cyclicality’s, dependencies and perspectives. The ability to zoom-out to systemic level and to zoom-in to micro level is key. Together with his team at Clingendael he services companies and financial institutions under the slogan: ‘Stronger strategy and firmer risk management by better understanding the outside world’.
