Country risk refers to the risk of investing or lending in a country, arising from possible changes in the business environment that may adversely affect operating profits or the value of assets in the country. For example, financial factors such as currency controls, devaluation or regulatory changes, or stability factors such as mass riots, civil war and other potential events contribute to companies' operational risks. This term is also sometimes referred to as political risk; however, country risk is a more general term that generally refers only to risks affecting all companies operating within or involved with a particular country. Political risk analysis providers and credit rating agencies use different methodologies to assess and rate countries' comparative risk exposure. Credit rating agencies tend to use quantitative econometric models and focus on financial analysis, whereas political risk providers tend to use qualitative methods, focusing on political analysis. However, there is no consensus on methodology in assessing credit and political risks.

Money Transfer Explained
Money transfer services can save you a lot of money when doing international transfers compared to the ATM or the bank. How do they work and are they worth the effort? Recommended money transfer services: **1st choice** CurrencyFair https://www.currencyfair.com/?channel=RGN3H1 [Referral link. Free transfer + 30€ bonus if you transfer 2000€ or equivalent] Usually the least expensive, but also the smallest list of supported currencies/countries. Use CurrencyFair first if your money comes *from* Europe, UK, Australia or any country where CurrencyFair has a local bank account. List of supported currencies to ‘send in’: https://app.currencyfair.com/support/en/sending-in/16 Check if they have a local account to ‘send in’ your currency: https://www.currencyfair.com/how-it-works/exchange-process-times/ (For example, they do not have local accounts in the US, Canada and New Zealand even if they accept the respective currencies.) **2nd Choice** TransferWise http://bit.ly/creativenomad_TW1 [Referral Link to support this channel. The free transfer promotion has been phased out! Sorry. :( ] Use TransferWise first if your money comes *from* the US, Canada, New Zealand or any supported country with a local account. Also use them to get an extra free transfer after using up your CurrencyFair freebie. List of supported countries here: http://bit.ly/creativenomad_TW2 How to make a transfer step-by-step here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWCFao8kcbI **3rd Choice** XE.com http://www.xe.com/xemoneytransfer/ Use XE.com if you need to transfer from a currency/country that is not supported by CurrencyFair or TransferWise, like sending money *from* Mexico. List of supported currencies here: http://www.xe.com/xemoneytransfer/ca/#currencies **EXTRA INFO** Good post comparing various money transfer services: https://www.currencyfair.com/blog/money-transfer-companies-compared/ Excellent website that compares various services including spread and fees for a given trade: https://moneytis.com/ Tips: ** You need a bank account at both ends of the transaction. The receiving account usually doesn't have to be yours, so you can use a (trusted!) friend's account if your are in a pinch. ** Compare your particular trade between services, pricing varies a lot depending on countries and currencies. ** Money transfer services are usually slow. The delay can be from a few hours to a few business days to more than a week in some cases. Plan ahead. ** Always test a new transfer service with a smaller amount first (a few hundred dollars or equivalent) to make sure everything is working as expected. ** Break down very big transfers into smaller chunks. It minimizes risk if anything goes wrong and it avoids getting flagged by government checks (usually around 10000US$, varies by country). It also evens out variations in the exchange rate if you do multiple transfers over a few weeks instead of all on the same day.

Exchange rate
In finance, an exchange rate (also known as a foreign-exchange rate, forex rate, FX rate or Agio) between two currencies is the rate at which one currency will be exchanged for another. It is also regarded as the value of one country’s currency in terms of another currency. For example, an interbank exchange rate of 91 Japanese yen (JPY, ¥) to the United States dollar (US$) means that ¥91 will be exchanged for each US$1 or that US$1 will be exchanged for each ¥91. Exchange rates are determined in the foreign exchange market, which is open to a wide range of different types of buyers and sellers where currency trading is continuous: 24 hours a day except weekends, i.e. trading from 20:15 GMT on Sunday until 22:00 GMT Friday. The spot exchange rate refers to the current exchange rate. The forward exchange rate refers to an exchange rate that is quoted and traded today but for delivery and payment on a specific future date. In the retail currency exchange market, a different buying rate and selling rate will be quoted by money dealers. Most trades are to or from the local currency. The buying rate is the rate at which money dealers will buy foreign currency, and the selling rate is the rate at which they will sell the currency. The quoted rates will incorporate an allowance for a dealer's margin (or profit) in trading, or else the margin may be recovered in the form of a "commission" or in some other way. Different rates may also be quoted for cash (usually notes only), a documentary form (such as traveler's cheques) or electronically (such as a debit card purchase). The higher rate on documentary transactions is due to the additional time and cost of clearing the document, while the cash is available for resale immediately. Some dealers on the other hand prefer documentary transactions because of the security concerns with cash. This video is targeted to blind users.

Political Risk, James Tompkins
This is the thirteenth and final lecture in the "International Finance" series in which I discuss Political Risk. What is it, how is it measured and how can multinational corporations protect themselves from or manage the political risks they face? For example, when Disney decided to open Eurodisney in France, they could have owned the entire operation outright. Instead they designed the financing and made other arrangements that significantly protected themselves from political risk. In this lecture, I discuss the logic underlying various measures that companies can take to manage their political risk.

What is MACRO RISK? What does MACRO RISK mean? MACRO RISK meaning, definition & explanation
What is MACRO RISK? What does MACRO RISK mean? MACRO RISK meaning - MACRO RISK definition - MACRO RISK explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Macro risk is financial risk that is associated with macroeconomic or political factors. There are at least three different ways this phrase is applied. It can refer to economic or financial risk found in stocks and funds, to political risk found in different countries, and to the impact of economic or financial variables on political risk. Macro risk can also refer to types of economic factors which influence the volatility over time of investments, assets, portfolios, and the intrinsic value of companies. Macro risk associated with stocks, funds, and portfolios is usually of concern to financial planners, securities traders, and investors with longer time horizons. Some of the macroeconomic variables that generate macro risk include unemployment rates, price indexes, monetary policy variables, interest rates, exchange rates, housing starts, agricultural exports, and even commodity prices such as gold. Models that incorporate macro risk are generally of two types. One type, used primarily by stock traders and institutions, focuses on how short-term changes in macro risk factors impact stock returns. These models include the arbitrage pricing theory and the modern portfolio theory families of models. The other models that incorporate macro risk data are valuation models or the closely related fundamental analysis models. Used primarily by those focusing on longer term investments including wealth managers, financial planners, and some institutional investors, these models are examples of intrinsic value analysis. In such analysis, forecasts of future company earnings are used to estimate the current and expected value of the investment being studied. Macro risk factors include any economic variables that are used to construct these estimates. Understanding that macro risk factors influence the intrinsic value of a particular investment is important because when the factors change values, errors can be introduced in the corresponding intrinsic value forecasts. Investors who follow the Black Swan Theory may try to reduce the overall exposure of their investments to different macro risk factors in order to reduce the impact of economic shocks. This may be accomplished using commercial portfolio optimization tools or by using mathematical programming methods. Another way macro risk is used is to differentiate between countries as potential places to invest. In this meaning, the level of a country’s macro risk differentiates its level of political stability and its general growth opportunities from those of other countries, and thus helps identify preferred countries for investment either directly or through country or regionally oriented funds. Such analysis of political risk is also used in the analysis of financial derivatives such as credit default swaps and other sophisticated financial products. International rankings of countries, often updated annually, provide insight into their relative political and social stability and economic growth. A new application of macro risk is essentially a converse of the first two meanings; it refers to how macroeconomics and fluctuations in financial variables generate political risk. For example, economic turbulence that leads to higher or lower levels of approval for the president’s policies would be a form of this macro risk.

Country Risk Assessment in Practice

Rothschild: ‘New World Order’ Will Be In Place By 2018
✅My channel has been fully demonetized if you would like to support please leave me a tip here ✅https://www.seekingthetruth.info/tipjar/ ✅https://www.patreon.com/truthseeker ✅My Bitcoin Wallet Address: 17S5o2Thyqcw9TqtFyQAQdAtjSwJJ95rcE Lord Jacob Rothschild has boasted that the New World Order will have full control over humanity by the year 2018. An issue of the Rothschild controlled Economist magazine published in 1988 openly told its readers that a world currency would be in place by 2018. Disclose.tv reports: With this in mind, the Economist is operating as a quasi-propaganda arm for the banking empire and it is meant to prime the public opinion that the globalist agenda will implement. CONTROLLING INTEREST OF THE ECONOMIST HELD BY ROTHSCHILD FAMILY In the magazine, on January 9, 1988, it was said that 30 years from now people in the United States, Europe and the Japanese along with others in countries that are rich, will be paying for shopping using the same currency. The price of items will not be shown in yen, dollars or the great British pound, but in one currency. This currency is going to be favored by shoppers along with companies as it would be a great deal more convenient than the different currencies of today. IDEA OF SINGLE CURRENCY STARTED BACK IN 1988 AND WAS CALLED OUTLANDISH The idea of a single currency back in 1988 seemed to be outlandish. One of the biggest changes to the world economy since the 70s has been that flowing money has taken over trade in goods as being the force behind driving the exchange rates. Due to the integrations of the financial markets around the globe, the differences in national economic policies that are known to change the interest rates, big transfers of financial assets are made from one country to another. The transfers are able to swamp the trade revenue flows in effect on demand and supply of the different currencies and so in the effect on the exchange rates. Telecommunications technology is continuing to grow in advancement and transactions are going to be cheaper and they will get faster. Thanks to economic policies that are uncoordinated, currencies are only going to get even more volatile. THE CURRENCY UNION IS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT TO RESIST The national economic boundaries are very slowly dissolving and the trend is going to continue, and the appeal of the currency union is going to be hard to resist to everyone, apart from the foreign-exchange traders along with governments. With the new single currency, the economic adjustment to the shift in relative prices is something that is going to occur smoothly, and it will happen automatically. With no currency risk trade, employment and investment will be spurred on.

Top 10 Countries With The LARGEST Gold Reserves!
Check out these 10 countries with the largest gold reserves in the world! This top 10 list features some of the richest and wealthiest countries on earth that have tons of gold bars stacked up somewhere! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "SURPRISING And Interesting Facts About Money!" video here: https://youtu.be/ONpChSPqVc4 Watch our "Most AMAZING Discoveries With A Metal Detector!" video here: https://youtu.be/45JveYKafVo Watch our "Most EXPENSIVE Diamonds In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/RcZATf3Lmb0 10.) India According to the World Gold Council, the Bank of India currently holds 557.7 tons of gold. It is one of the largest stores of gold in the world! This makes up 9.9 % of the country’s total foreign reserve. Foreign exchange reserves is money or other assets held by a nation’s central bank so they can back the national currency. India, home to 1.25 billion people, is the number one largest consumer of the precious metal. Furthermore, India is one of the most reliable drivers of global demand. For example, India’s festival and wedding season, which runs from October to December, has historically been a major market for gold. And probably, one of the most interesting facts about India and gold is that India rarely invests much in gold. This is because as a country, India operates under the belief that buying gold leads to a deficit. And their belief must be proving right as things also seem to be improving for India. For instance, if you look at the last few years, India has increased its gold reserves from 557.74 to 557.77. While this might not seem like a lot, India is also at its highest point in history! In addition to what the country holds, Indian households which are considered the world’s largest hoarders of gold, hold a record 23,000-24,000 tons, which is worth about $800 billion. 9.) Netherlands In the past few years, the Netherlands has held 52% of its foreign reserve in gold. The Netherlands has a reported 612.45 tons. In 2016 it was reported that the bank was looking for a place to store all its gold because they were going to renovate the vaults and needed to moving it. The Dutch central bank is planning to move the country’s gold reserves from the center of Amsterdam to a new complex called the Cash Center. Like most countries, Dutch gold is also held in banks around the world to reduce risk. Security measures to guard the gold 24/7 have become a problem in Amsterdam. 189,000 kilos of gold will be moved at the beginning of 2022. Maybe this is one reason that over the last decade and a half, the Netherlands was selling off tons of gold in order to reduce its reserve. However, there weren’t that many buyers out there and they sold less than the country wanted. More recently the country has had less ambition to sell gold. Currently, the country holds the same amount of tons, 612.45 that they have over the last few years. However, the country has increased its percentage of foreign reserves to 61.2 %. 8.) Japan Japan is another country which had been increasing its gold reserves since the 1960’s. Their official gold holdings were reported at 765.2 tons. About 2.4% of Japan’s gold today is in foreign reserve. Historically, Japan has always held a bit more gold than other countries. This was true until 2011, when they began to sell some of their reserve in order to pump money into the economy after the tsunami and the following Fukushima nuclear disaster. But even with selling, Japan’s central bank has been one of the most aggressive practitioners of quantitative easing. For example, in January of 2016, it lowered interest rates below zero, which has helped fuel demand in gold around the world. 7.) Switzerland Prior to 1997, Switzerland was steadily building its gold reserves. In 1997, the decision was made to sell some of those reserves to bolster the Swiss currency and diversify the foreign reserves. The percent of foreign reserves in Switzerland is currently 6.7 %. Switzerland actually has the world’s largest reserves of gold per capita and currently has reported 1,040 tons. Over time, many citizens in the country started to feel like the bank was getting rid of too much gold. They then banded together with the “Save the Swiss” movement. However, once everyone was able to vote in 2014, the vote came to a no, and gold continued to be sold. During World War II, Switzerland became the center of the gold trade in Europe, making transactions with both the Allies and Axis powers. Today, much of its gold trading is done with Hong Kong and China. Around last year, the Swiss National Bank made a $5.9 billion profit, reportedly from its gold holdings.

Emerging debt: Why a stronger dollar troubles developing countries | Counting the Cost
The prospect of a trade war slowing down the world's economy means investors have been reassessing where to put their money. In recent weeks, developing market currencies like the Turkish lira and Argentina's peso have fallen to their weakest levels in months against the US dollar. For the time being, the US Federal Reserve is the only major central bank raising interest rates, and that's lending support to the dollar. At a central bank conference in Portugal this week, the US Federal Reserve chairman said the case remains strong for more US rate hikes - which means trouble ahead for those countries borrowing in dollars. After the end of the global financial crisis, record low interest rates in the US meant many developing nations borrowed in dollars. And as the dollar rises, it's now costing those developing countries a lot more to repay their debts. So, is the dollar to strengthen further? And how big an issue is it for emerging market economies? Timothy Ash, a senior emerging markets sovereign strategist with London-based BlueBay Asset Management, explains why, for some economists, it's raising alarm bells. "I think the consensus is beginning to emerge that the dollar will probably end up being a winner from the trade wars ... helped also by the assumption of weakness in the eurozone ... It does look like the dollar is on an appreciating trend," says Ash. "It means more pressure [for emerging markets] ... The assumption was ... as long as global growth stayed fine, then on the revenue side emerging market countries would be more than able to cope with higher DM and US rates." But, according to Ash, "what's changed in terms of perceptions has been the dollar rally, that obviously increases debt service costs in hard currency, in dollars from the emerging market countries. And the other one has been concern about trade wars and what that means for global growth." "So you put all those together: Fed tightening, dollar's strength, trade wars and prospects for global growth weaking a bit - and also fairly difficult bottom-up stories in many big emerging market countries ... You've got elections looming this weekend in Turkey, you've also got elections in Mexico, Brazil ... There are significant reform challenges ... It's very challenging environments for emerging markets." Also on this episode of Counting the Cost: Digital addicts: How the tech industry uses psychology to design products we find irresistible. We talk to Dr Jamie Woodcock, a researcher at Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, about the business behind digital addiction. Libya's oil industry: Libya has Africa's largest oil reserves and oil exports are a vital source for the country's economy. But fighting in the oil crescent is putting the OPEC member's future production at risk.

What is SOVEREIGN CREDIT RISK? What does SOVEREIGN CREDIT RISK mean? SOVEREIGN CREDIT RISK meaning - SOVEREIGN CREDIT RISK definition - SOVEREIGN CREDIT RISK explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sovereign credit risk is the risk of a government becoming unwilling or unable to meet its loan obligations, as happened to Cyprus in 2013. Many countries faced sovereign risk in the Great Recession of the late-2000s. This risk can be mitigated by creditors and stakeholders taking extra precaution when making investments or financial transactions with firms based in foreign countries. Five key factors that affect the probability of sovereign debt leading to sovereign risk are: debt service ratio, import ratio, investment ratio, variance of export revenue, and domestic money supply growth. The probability of loss increases with increases in debt service ratio, import ratio, variance of export revenue and/or domestic money supply growth. Frenkel, Karmann, Raahish and Scholtens also argue that the likelihood of rescheduling decreases as investment ratio increases, due to resultant economic productivity gains. However, Saunders argues that debt rescheduling can become more likely if the investment ratio rises as the foreign country could become less dependent on its external creditors and so be less concerned about receiving credit from these countries/investors.

A Surprising Economic History of the World: Why Countries Remain Rich or Poor
Following the financial crisis of 2008 widespread concern arose among advanced economies concerning the size of their deficits; they increasingly joined emerging economies in viewing export-led growth as their ideal strategy. In March 2009, even before international cooperation reached its peak with the 2009 G-20 London Summit Economist Ted Truman became one of the first to warn of the dangers of competitive devaluation breaking out. He also coined the phrase competitive non-appreciation. On 27 September 2010, Brazilian Finance Minister Guido Mantega said that the world is "in the midst of an international currency war." Numerous financial journalists agreed with Mantega's view, referring to recent interventions by various countries seeking to devalue their exchange rate including China, Japan, Colombia, Israel and Switzerland. Other analysts asserted that fears of a currency war were exaggerated.[11] In September, senior policy makers such as International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn and US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner were reported as saying the chances of a genuine currency war breaking out were low; however by early October, Strauss-Kahn was warning that the risk of a currency war was real. He also suggested the IMF could help resolve the trade imbalances which could be the underlying casus belli for conflicts over currency valuations. Mr Strauss-Kahn said that using currencies as weapons "is not a solution [and] it can even lead to a very bad situation. There’s no domestic solution to a global problem." Daniel Tenengauzer, the head of emerging-market currency and rates strategy at Merrill Lynch, suggested talk of a currency war can be seen as "political posturing", noting that emerging economies had been intervening on a wider scale back in 2009. George Soros expressed concern saying "I share the growing concern about the misalignment of currencies. Brazil’s finance minister speaks of a latent currency war, and he is not far off the mark. It is in the currency markets where different economic policies and different economic and political systems interact and clash." Considerable attention had been focused on China. For much of 2009 and 2010, China has been under pressure from the US to allow the yuan to appreciate. Between June and October 2010, China allowed a 2% appreciation of the yuan, but there are concerns from Western observers that China only relaxes her intervention when under heavy pressure. The fixed peg was not abandoned until just before the June G20 meeting, after which the yuan appreciated by about 1%, only to slowly devalue again until further US pressure in September when the yuan again began relatively steep appreciation, with the imminent September US Congressional hearings to discuss measures to force a revaluation.[17] Leading financial journalist Martin Wolf has suggested there may be advantages in western economies taking a more confrontational approach against China, which in recent years has been by far the biggest practitioner of competitive devaluation. Though he suggests that rather than using protectionist measures that may spark a trade war, a better tactic would be to use targeted capital controls against China to prevent them buying foreign assets in order to further devalue the yuan, as previously suggested by Centre for European Policy Studies director Daniel Gros.

Is ITALY worse off with the EURO? - VisualPolitik EN
Italy is the only country, alongside with Greece, that is poorer now than before having the EURO as their official currency. In fact, their economy has been stagnated for two decades and they are one of the biggest indebted economies, with a debt bigger than 130% of their GDP. Many European pundits call this country “the sick man in Europe”. Nevertheless, 20 years ago, Italy was one of the wealthiest economies on the planet. Their citizens were even richer than those from Great Britain and their industry was the second biggest in all across Europe. The entire world enjoyed the music of Eros Ramazzotti or Luciano Pavarotti, the Spaguetti Western movies and... well, the Rocco Siffredi movies too. Now those days are gone. This is why many Italian politicians suggest that leaving the Euro would be a solution to get back to the golden years of the Italian economy. But is it right? Is the Euro the problem in Italy? Why are they in such a big crisis? And why did Italy become so rich in the 80s and the 90s, despite the corruption, the red tape and the political unrest? In this video we will answer all of those questions. *ERRATUM Min 8.40: There is a mistake in the chart. It says "1 It LIRA = 400 DM" and "1 It. LIRA = 1300 DM". We meant it the other way around. I should say "1 DM = 400 It. LIRA" and 1 DM = 1300 It. LIRA". Sorry for the inconvenience.

Money and Finance: Crash Course Economics #11
So, we've been putting off a kind of basic question here. What is money? What is currency? How are the two different. Well, not to give away too much, but money has a few basic functions. It acts as a store of value, a medium of exchange, and as a unit of account. Money isn't just bills and coins. It can be anything that meets these three criteria. In US prisons, apparently, pouches of Mackerel are currency. Yes, mackerel the fish. Paper and coins work as money because they're backed by the government, which is an advantage over mackerel. So, once you've got money, you need finance. We'll talk about borrowing, lending, interest, and stocks and bonds. Also, this episode features a giant zucchini, which Adriene grew in her garden. So that's cool.

Eastern countries in the turmoil
EcoTV: The expertise of the economic research department of BNP Paribas. Sibylle Dehesdin: Last month we were discussing financial pressure that developed among Euro land countries. Some feared that the Euro land might split but today the fearing, the focus has shifted to Eastern Europe, why? Philippe dArvisenet: first of all, regarding Euro land you had official statements according to which if a bail out was necessary, it would be implemented, so it contributed probably to cool things down. And when it comes to Eastern Europe, a lot of these countries are impacted by a very difficult situation. First of all, they enjoy high rate of growth which was financed by capital coming from outside, inflows if you want. Second, there was a big wave of credit distribution that resulted in a housing bubble in some of these countries so this thing has burst to begin with, second, they are impacted by the fact that their main clients which are Western Europe countries are also experiencing a recession. Third, following all this, there is a necessity to finance these deficits, the finance is not there anymore because of risk, and consequently they had higher interest rate, that did not help of course, and a decline in their exchange rate which resulted in a very bad situation for many people who were indebted in foreign currency if you want. So, all this is announcing a very difficult situation to settle down. Sibylle Dehesdin: Doesnt it look like the Asian crisis? Philippe dArvisenet: yes and no. on the yes side I would say you have common features, for instance, big deficits. For instance, the fact that people, banks households in Eastern Europe are indebted in currency which is not the currency in which they have their income so they are exposed to exchange rate risks, thats common. I would say, beyond these ingredients, things are worse in the sense that you have several Eastern European countries with deficits which are much higher than they were back in 96 the year before the Asian crisis burst for instance in Thailand, which was the first country affected. And the worst in terms of deficit, in 96, it was close to 8% of the GDP. When you compare that to countries like Ukraine, it is 11%, if you compare that to Romania it is 13%, if you compare that to Bulgaria it is nearly 25%. So the situation is worse, for that, and also because at that time, you could have a recovery in the Asian countries in 98-99 just because there was growth somewhere else, everywhere except Asia, if you want. Now we are in a global recession and you cannot rely on the neighbour to help. Sibylle Dehesdin: and what about integrating more rapidly some of these countries to the Euro zone? Philippe dArvisenet: that would obviously help in terms of exchange rate because the exchange rate would disappear. Unfortunately, all countries are not prepared to an extent. So, you have countries for which it would be easy, others not. Anyway, in order to achieve that, you would have to forget some of the criteria to get in Euro land because they do not make sense anymore, for instance, inflation.

How to minimise political risk
Political risk cannot be avoided, but it can be managed. Investors usually take measures to lower the probability of a risk affecting them, and to reduce its effects if it becomes a reality. The simplest way to manage political risk is to avoid investing in a region affected by that risk. It is however equally important to have a plan in place in case you do find your investments are impacted by political events. This will better position you to ignore market noise and make sound investment decisions. Hot topics: • What is political risk? • What are the implications? • How can you protect yourself and your family? • Is investing offshore the best option?
