As seen in

Political and country risk assessment becomes particularly meaningful when it is quantified over time and between jurisdictions, and when it is applied to the behavior and protection of assets.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

Rob Kotecki

Thanks so much for your help. I can't tell you how insightful the responses were and how often The PRS Group’s analyses were affirmed by other sources.
Reporter, Private Funds Management

Dr Michel-Henry Bouchet

I have been using risk ratings and economic data from International Country Risk Guide for roughly thirty years, for teaching Country Risk Management in Europe, in China, in Latin America, and in the US. In addition, ICRG provides me with a vital source of risk ratings and forecasts in managing and advising investment funds that focus on volatile countries, both emerging and developed, given that the former have lost the monopoly of country risk turbulence. ICRG risk scores that go back to the mid-1980s are also a key input in econometric research for cross-country correlation analysis. Overall, the combination of qualitative and quantitative risk data makes ICRG an indispensable ingredient in country risk assessment.
