Private Client Advantage (PCA)
Political risk is profitable. The key is to harness the power of risk and translate that force into investible actions. For decades, PRS’ risk metrics have been used by the world’s leading institutional investors, central banks, multinational corporations, and the globe’s leading scholars. Each uses our risk ratings, forecasts, and data in their own way.

UNIQUE, RESPONSIVE, CREDIBLE
For 40 years, PRS has enjoyed intimate and constructive relationships with its global clientele.
Such mutual awareness helps ensure that our risk products are consistently accurate and relevant to today’s ever-changing and increasingly quant-driven geopolitical risk world.
Independently back-tested over the past 25 years by leading academics and multilateral organizations, our data and forecasts have been acclaimed internationally for their explanatory power to predict political events and asset behavior, price sovereign bonds and petroleum reserves, shed insight into numerous political and economic phenomena, and advance the academic literature in published journals in ways no other geopolitical data series has been able to achieve. We appear in all major news media, from the Wall Street Journal to the Financial Times, Bloomberg and CNBC.
It’s not surprising therefore that the firm’s clientele continues to expand to include all major institutional investors (with over $20 trillion in combined assets under management), central banks, sovereign wealth funds, multilateral organizations, transnational firms, and all leading universities and colleges worldwide.
It explains why PRS’ client retention ratio is roughly 90% over the last five-year period.
And it explains why PRS’ data has been labelled the ‘most authoritative’ and ‘most reliable’ of all country risk ratings.
LITIGATION SUPPORT, INVESTMENT CLIMATE IMPROVEMENTS, BESPOKE DATA SERIES
PRS also holds the distinction to be the only geopolitical data series to assist in the valuation of assets before the courts when the valuation/sale of such assets are in contention. We continue to work with a range of governments around the globe to help improve their investment climates and reduce corruption. And the firm holds exclusive risk data agreements with select foreign governments, corporate banking entities, and the world’s largest financial news organization.
HOW IT WORKS
Geopolitical risk is more dynamic than ever before, and permeates most aspects of business and investment, globally. While the PRS/ICRG models have been shown to be sufficiently flexible in providing our clientele with insights and early warning signals, a more nuanced and time sensitive approach is warranted.
The new Private Client Advantage serves this purpose by providing clients with service options ideally suited to their needs. Three tiers are involved:
