Trusted by the world’s leading investment houses, multilateral organizations, central banks, transnational firms, and universities for over 40 years, PRS’ quant-driven geopolitical risk data, ratings, and forecasts continue to provide untold opportunities for both academic and applied research, generating incomparable insights into the challenges presented by the pandemic and by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Appearing consistently in scholarly and trade journals since the 1980s, PRS holds the distinction of being the only geopolitical risk firm whose work has successfully bridged the worlds of academe, investment, commerce, and public policy.
Our data have been shown to be predictive of risk events, correlated with numerous political and economic phenomena, and linked to asset behavior, thereby allowing investment managers to adopt a more selective approach to country exposure for portfolio and tactical decisions—especially those guided by ESG requirements.
From technology firms, to pharmaceuticals, to resource extraction companies operating in a multitude of countries, PRS’ work has consistently provided a measure of balance and analytical rigor to corporate planning, asset valuation, and insurance underwriting.
No other firm occupies this mantle.
