Having worked with Eunomix and being exposed to their work, specifically, Claude Baissac, they have depth of talent in understanding, simplifying and advising on global politics, global socio economic matters and global risk on human progress. Their value add is immense for governments, business and social development organisations. South Africa continues to benefit from Eunomix’s approach.
Mike Teke, CEO, Sereti Coal, President of the South African Chamber of Mines 2015-2017
Eunomix made a presentation to our Board on scenarios for the future of South Africa and the implications of country risk for our company. Their rigorous and innovative use of economic and political data was excellent. We then hired Eunomix to support the development of a new strategy and strategy development process. Our objective was to do strategy differently: i) bring rigor in the analysis relevant internal and external factors and their impact; ii) integrate strategy, business planning and business development into one coherent process. Eunomix delivered above expectations.
Reginald Haman, Chief Risk Officer, Royal Bafokeng Platinum
In my time as Chief Risk Officer at Implats, Eunomix provided over a significant period of time a concise and relevant analysis of political and country risk. In addition, Eunomix were able to provide very useful inputs to strategic risk issues such as environmental and economic risk. Their insights were very well received by the Executive and the Board.

Eunomix is a “strategic partner” to our exploration and mining projects, particularly in high risk geopolitics, infrastructure and security. Their understanding of and analysis is of the highest level. The value they have added to our projects is significant.
Anton Mauve, Managing Partner, Plinian Capital
We have worked with Eunomix on a range of socio-economic, geopolitical and risk mitigation assignments over a period of 7 years, on each occasion Eunomix has added strategic insight and quantifiable value to our shared clients. Eunomix, exemplified by its CEO Claude Baissac, maintains consistently high standards for its intellectual rigour, analysis and integrity – I would have no hesitation in recommending the firm and Claude in the highest possible terms.
Hugh Petre, K2 Intelligence
We believe that Eunomix should be a critical partner in all exploration and extractive ventures – the depth of experience and insights are invaluable to informed decision-making and understanding of the risks associated with exploration and extraction, and what is required to ensure long term sustainability.
