What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

IMF Executive Board

The benefit of using ICRG risks scores is that they are based on a consistent methodology to combine political, social and economic information with expert judgment from their analysts.
Review of the Flexible Credit Line, the Precautionary and Liquidity Line, and the Rapid Financing Instrument; IMF Policy Paper; Jan 27, 2014.

Campbell R Harvey

I have used PRS’ International Country Risk Guide index on over a dozen scientific publications [and] found...a significant ability of the PRS political risk indicator to predict realized political risk events. These data also allow us to address questions of great interest to a finance audience. For example, the same paper asks the question: how much of a country’s sovereign bond yield is due to political risk?

William B Eimicke

For many years, as a senior official at the city, state and federal levels, as an advisor to governments around the world and as a professor, I find PRS the best source of political risk assessment information for those of us without the highest levels of security clearance. PRS uses quantitative and qualitative tools and is constantly updating their information and analysis.
