Clients & Testimonials

The PRS Group’s clients include the largest and most prominent institutional investors, trans-national firms, multilateral agencies, central banks, sovereign wealth funds, research groups, and universities, globally.

Asset managers and analysts in the world’s financial centers employ our firm’s data and analyses to develop positions and hedging stratagems across all asset classes in developed, emerging, and frontier markets. Our data provides them with an early-warning system of potential long and short positions.

Trans-national companies use our products to develop subtle risk management techniques and our data to form realistic hurdle rates for new and existing investments. Companies in this space also see The PRS Group as an important component of their purchase of political risk insurance.

Many of the world’s development banks and lending agencies also use PRS and ICRG products to help balance their global portfolios and to conduct ground-breaking research in econometric modeling.

Academics at universities worldwide use our data as a means of factoring country and political risk into their specific research agenda.
