Where can I find out about country stability and risk?
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 users should check out the Bloomberg Crisis Monitor <CRIS>.
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 covers country stability and risk in its aptly named Country Risk Reports which it publishes quarterly for roughly 200 nations. For quick and easy access to these, type the name of a country and the words ‘country risk’ into the search bar.
If it’s rankings or data that you’re looking for, access these from the ‘Country Risk and Industry Research’ > ‘Data Tools’ > ‘Country Risk index’ menu options. From the Country Risk page itself, you will find country analysis and reports, and the Fitch Country Risk Index 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.
