The Gefira Foundation is a part of the Pan-European think-tank focused on current geopolitical and financial instabilities.

Gefira provides in-depth and comprehensive analysis of and valuable insight into current events that investors, financial planners and politicians need to know to anticipate the world of tomorrow; it is intended for professional and non-professional readers.

The Gefira team is made up of people of different professional, educational, and national backgrounds. We are a group of economists, financiers, lawyers, and historians. European political establishment and existing institutions are failing to understand social-political and economic trends and the risk Europe is facing. Many events come as a complete surprise. Our team analyzes signals and trends before they become headline news. Gefira is an indispensable tool for those who have to make political and investment decisions.

The Gefira-team investigates a problem thoroughly, has a panel discussion and dares to draw conclusions that go counter to what is presented in the main media.
