Global Risk Service

Access investment risk ratings tailored to your industry and business model

How do you quantify investment and project risk?

This service provides transparent risk scores across 151 countries for 54 risk factors and 12 investment types.

With the ability to customize risk ratings based on your industry, business model, and investment, and compare uniform scores across countries, this service enables you to:

  • Identify risk factors that affect each phase of your investment
  • Estimate the loss in project value and adjust it based on probability
  • Calculate the net present value of projects adjusted for risk
