international country risk guides






The International Country Risk Guide (ICRG) model for forecasting financial, economic, and political risk was created in 1980 by the editors of International Reports, the widely respected weekly newsletter on international finance and economics. To meet the needs of clients for an in-depth and exhaustively researched analysis of the potential risks to international business operations, the editors created a statistical model to calculate risks and backed it up with analysis that explain the numbers and examine what the numbers do not show. The result is a comprehensive system that enables various types of risk to be measured and compared between countries. In 1992, ICRG, its editor and analysts moved from International Reports to The PRS Group, becoming an integral part of the company’s services to the international business community. In 2001, PRS launched ICRG online at www.ICRGOnline.com


One advantage of the ICRG model is that it allows users to make their own risk assessments based on the ICRG model or to modify the model to meet their specific requirements. If particular risk factors have greater bearing on business or investments, composite risk ratings can be recalculated by giving greater weight to those factors. Used by institutional investors, banks, multinational corporations, importers, exporters, foreign exchange traders, shipping concerns, and a multitude of others, the ICRG model can determine how financial, economic, and political risk might affect their business and investments now and in the future.
