A lack of data-driven insight and trusted analysis means that many investors are regularly caught out by emerging political risks. Government instability, civil unrest and erratic policymaking can, and do, affect returns in emerging and frontier markets. But rising political risk is also making the traditionally stable markets of the West more volatile. Understanding what may happen next is critical.

Institutional investors are increasingly turning to our data and research to help fill this gap. By integrating our indices into their portfolios, asset managers can price in 40+ political risks, as well as 110+ economic and ESG issues to achieve a genuinely global and independent perspective on their risk exposure. Our data is backed up by access to in-depth research, daily updates, and briefings from an expert team of regional, sector and thematic analysts. This full-spectrum approach ensures you have the insight you need to identify and track market-shifting risk dynamics and make better investment decisions.
