Analysis of international markets and country risk
Firms that appear on international markets need insurance coverage, especially if they are oriented towards high risk markets, they expose themselves to counterparties for high amounts and due dates for long-term payment extensions. This requires an approach to risk assessment through "country risk". This discipline, difficult to define, embraces a series of factors that cannot always be assessed quantitatively. These factors can also have a very different nature: political, economic, financial and operational.
The course aims to:
- Provide methodological and analytical elements for assessing the risks associated with the internationalization processes of companies.
- Investigate the nature of these risks: commercial with respect to politicians, sovereigns rather than banking or linked to non-financial companies.
- Highlight the importance of country risk and the sectoral dimension in which the company operates.
- Apply the tools to the current international situation, with reference to several concrete cases.
- Give some hints on insurance instruments to eliminate or mitigate risks.
