Oxford Economics Launches Global Risk Service

Oxford Economics launches the Global Risk Service, a suite of data-driven and forward-looking tools that measure macro-economic and financial crises risks in 166 countries.

The Global Risk Service provides a transparent and rigorous framework to identify, quantify and compare emerging sovereign, FX and banking sector risks, based on historical data since 2000 and algorithm-based methodology.

“Financial crises can strike any type of economy and have often reflected a complex mixture of drivers,” said Innes McFee, Chief Global Economist at Oxford Economics. “Our Global Risk Service helps market participants capture early warning of these systematic crises. Our FX Risk Tool, for example, shows outperformance compared to market implied depreciation.”

“Besides historical data and one year-ahead forecasts, our Global Risk Service comes with Research Briefings, webinars and economist support. Users will be able to access comprehensive data and insights about the risks to which they are exposed, and move with confidence when looking to avoid, manage or profit from risks,” said Gabriel Sterne, Head of Strategy Service and Global Emerging Market Research at Oxford Economics.
