About This Webinar

This webinar looks at the outbreak of COVID-19 as an example of country event risk. We cite historical examples, context and risk assessment tools during the presentation. The presentation will also address characteristics which underscore robust information flow, and we will review briefly a quick comparison among select emerging markets. Focus is placed on the importance of information flow and how impediments to that flow heighten event risk. We will look at methods and metrics that highlight country transparency or its lack, and consequent vulnerability. Discussion will address implications for the risk taker.
