Doing business around the world

Our Economics team has created country profiles on risks of doing business in different countries. Each profile outlines a country’s economy, and business conditions, – invaluable information if you’re considering exporting or investing overseas, particularly in an unfamiliar market. We regularly update the profiles to provide as accurate a picture as possible.

We do not provide market gradings for individual countries, but we take part in the OECD process that produces country risk grades for 170 countries. These measure country credit risk for loan maturities over two years, and range from 1 (low risk) to 7 (high risk).
