Where can I find out about country stability and risk?

16/03/2020

If you need to know about country stability and risk, there are two MIRC services you ought to be looking at: Bloomberg and FitchConnect.

Bloomberg: 

On-campus users may also wish to look at Bloomberg, accessible in the MIRC Bloomberg Suite. The Bloomberg Crisis Monitor <CRIS> is the page to start from.

The Crisis Monitor brings together economic and market data related to financial or political crises in three areas of the world – Europe (our default view), the Middle East and the United States.

Switch between regional screens using the orange drop-down menu at the top left. Data varies for each region but gives an overview of major markets affecting the economies – including equity, bond and credit – alongside access to various key economic indicators and news items essential to review the relative financial health of a country and its likelihood of default on its debts.

FitchConnect:

FitchConnect covers country stability and risk in its aptly named Country Risk Reports which it publishes quarterly for roughly 200 nations.

If it’s rankings or data that you’re looking for, access these from the ‘Sectors’ > ‘Country Risk’ menu option. From the Country Risk page, you will find country analysis and reports, but also the Fitch Country Risk Index  which provides a country-comparative evaluation of the political, economic and operational risks to stability over a short- and long-term time horizon.

If you have any questions on country data or analysis, please do contact MIRC.
