Political Risk Overview
WHAT DOES MBI’S POLITICAL RISK DATA INCLUDE?
With our CONIAS Risk Intelligence data, you can identify political risks for location, logistics, and investment security at an early stage and develop targeted adaptation strategies. The index is based on empirical data.
Supply Chain Security
For the specification of the subnational resilience data (SURE), MBI researchers combine insights on a region’s conflict history with information on a country’s socio-economic well-being and development. The latter are significant for the long-term stability of states and societies. Hence, the calculated SURE resilience score is especially well suited for applications for strategic market entry planning as well as for the evaluation of production sites, suppliers, and supply chain networks.
Self-Explaining Political Risk Data
With our CONIAS Risk Intelligence database, we offer the service of a “translation of values into text” – to give versed as well as less experienced analysts quick access to the data. In addition, we also provide a kind of interpretation for assessing the consequences of political risks. This allows you to analyze the current situation in different regions in order to assess the extent of politically motivated physical violence. The data is placed in a temporal context for adequate risk management.
The subnational safety dataset combines monthly and systematically collected conflict data with context data from the recent history of the conflict in the specific area. These include, among other things, the geographical spread, the societal relevance and the dynamics of the issue of violence. In this way, an individual specific security value is generated at local, provincial, or federal state level, optimized for all site monitoring and travel security applications.
The new German Supply Chain Act demands transparency and risk management along the entire supply chain. Our MBI CONIAS Academy qualifies Risk Analysts and Managers to deal with the challenges of the new Supply Chain Act.
Global CRESTA Plus
Global CRESTA Plus helps brokers and reinsurers assess and present natural hazard risk. The Global CRESTA Plus maps define country-specific zones for uniform and detailed coverage of natural hazards. These are widely accepted standards in the international insurance industry. Global CRESTA Plus offers insurers an important basis for aggregated risk assessment, exposure management as well as reinsurance negotiation and reporting for natural catastrophes such as drought, storms, floods or earthquakes. Optionally, CONIAS political risk data matching the CRESTA zones can be licensed.
WHAT IS THE POLITICAL RISK INDEX?
Political instability poses an immediate and highly complex set of risks to business interests and well-being. Politically motivated violence is particularly dangerous because war, terrorism and political unrest can cause considerable damage to companies in all sectors. With regard to political risks, companies are concerned about the physical well-being of employees abroad, local staff and partners, risk of production sites and disruption of production cycles and lines of communication and transport.
Our data is the product of many years of research at the University of Heidelberg on the escalation dynamics of political conflicts and the resilience of the affected states. It provides transparency at a small-scale level to a world full of politically induced insecurity. The data supplies context and informs not only about isolated events, but also includes all conflicts and structural factors relevant to the security situation in the assessment.
