The Coface country risk assessment aims at evaluating the average credit risk of companies in a given country. The assessment is based on economic, financial and political data. But it also takes into account Coface experience on the country, under two dimensions: Coface’s payment experience on the companies of the country and also its assessment of the Business climate.
Consult our sector studies available on line: how will the main aggregates in the sector develop? How should the Coface payment experience be characterised concerning these companies? What are the factors in today's economy that can affect sector activity in the world and in the major regions? What challenges in terms of strategy, price, costs and competition are the sectors up against?
The regional and macroeconomic view is enriched with the analysis of Coface's underwriters, located around the world. The latter provide their experience and their viewpoints on the outlook for companies in the sector in question in their own market.
Consult the evolutions of Coface Business climate assessment and its methodology.
The Business climate assessment established by Coface aims at measuring the quality of the private governance in a given country and more specifically the financial transparency of companies and the efficiency of the court system for settling debt issues. It is bases on a survey filled by all Coface entities in the world and completed by business environment assessment prepared by international organisations.
