Managing Director, FP Analytics
Claire, following FP‘s acquisition of the consultancy Garten Rothkopf in August 2016, created and heads FP Analytics, the research and analytics division of the FP Group. Claire oversees all global research and analysis, serving clients and running projects on five continents. She counsels clients on current and prospective market, policy, and security developments with a focus on emerging trends, scenario planning, strategic foresight, and translating analytical insights into actionable intelligence. Having joined Garten Rothkopf at its inception in 2005, Claire directed the research for the firm’s inaugural publication, “A Blueprint for Green Energy in the Americas,” praised by Foreign Affairs magazine as a “priceless must read.” She writes regularly on energy, economic and security issues, including for the Financial Times, International Economy, Americas Quarterly, the Daily Beast, and Foreign Policy. Claire started her career in corporate finance for a multinational corporation, followed by a stint in democratic development in Latin America.
