Our Government Stability Index assesses the stability of executive authority and the potential for an illegitimate transfer of power such as a coup. In countries without a stable basis for executive power, businesses face a host of challenges including heightened regulatory uncertainty and the potential for increased operating costs.

The Government Stability Index can help you:

  • Understand the exposure of your business portfolio to policy and regulatory uncertainty
  • Screen vendors and third parties
  • Compare risk across multiple countries and regions
  • Benchmark your company’s ESG exposure against your peers
