Country Risk Rating Alert - August 2018

23 elo 2018

D&B’s Country Risk Indicator provides a comparative, cross-border assessment of the risk of doing business in a country and encapsulates the risk that country-wide factors pose to the predictability of export payments and investment returns over a time horizon of two years.

Dun & Bradstreet’s Country Insight Snapshot Reports provide greater visibility of potential upcoming outlook trend changes for each country. Any changes to the outlook trend can be further explored in the headlines and key developments section of the reports.

This is a powerful refinement and – alongside the Country Risk Ratings – provides our customers with even greater visibility of the current and future situations across 132 countries.

Shown below are our Risk Rating Changes recently published in the latest edition of our International Risk & Payment Review Journal.
