PRS-Queen’s Artificial Intelligence Initiative

For nearly 40 years, The PRS Group has been the trusted source for reliable, quant-driven political and country risk forecasts and ratings. The firm’s clientele is comprised of the world’s largest institutional investors, trans-national firms, and leading research scientists.

Now, as the first of its kind, PRS has partnered with Queen’s University (Canada) to form the Artificial Intelligence Initiative. The goal is to interface PRS’ independently-acclaimed risk data series with the latest computer analytics applications. The process is client-driven. Initial results have been spectacular. See Forecasting an Innovative Partnership

Among the early findings:

  • PRS’ composite risk scores of 140 countries – which are used often to structure equity and bond portfolios – were brought forward one-year with a 90% accuracy rate;
  • Significant country ‘clusters’ were uncovered, providing new insights into political risk trends and enhanced risk mitigation techniques; and
  • Correlations between risk metrics were established, offering a better understanding of the behavior and interplay between qualitative and quantitative factors.

Anchoring the data series is PRS’ CountryData Online – the most comprehensive political and country risk data series globally, generating nearly 100,000 new data points annually.
