EULER HERMES RISK RATINGS, EXPLAINED

Our methodology consists of analyzing hundreds of economic indicators, both quantitative and qualitative, to provide the best understanding of the economic, political, business, commercial and financing risks.

Our risk ratings have a short-term element (country risk level) and a medium-term element (country grade). The country risk level measures the possibility of payment disruption in the next 6-12 months by focusing on economic output, commercial risk and macroeconomic indicators that can signal financial crisis or disruption to financing flows. The country grade measures the risk of payment disruption in the next two years by analyzing economic structure, business environment and political risk within the country. Within the country risk map, each country is given one of the following ratings: Low risk, Medium risk, Sensitive risk or High risk.
