Types of Country Risks

A country risk can be divided into two main groups and they include:

  • Economic Risk: it can be described as the ability of a country to pay back its debt.  For example, if a country's debt-to-GDP ratio is high, then the country may not be able to easily raise money to support itself and not suitable for investment.

  • Political Risk: it can be described as the impact of the decisions taken by the politicians of a particular country on businesses and investments. It can also be referred to as the readiness of a country to pay its debt or create an alluring climate for investors and business owners.

How to measure Country Risk

A country's risk can be measured by examining the credit ratings of a particular country. These ratings are usually provided by major rating agencies and other sources such as the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times. A country with a high credit rating is usually considered a suitable country for investment. Also, you can measure a country's risk by observing the financial and economic policies. You need to evaluate the country's policy on the financial market, the performance of the stock market, and its available alternative investment opportunities.

  • Qualitative Analysis: this can be described as the application of subjective analysis to get the investment risk, such as market rumors and political news. You can get such information on Google or wall street journal.

  • Quantitative Ratings: this can be described as the application of statistics and ratios to get investment risks such as the beta coefficient of the MSCI index and the debt-to-GDP ratio of a country. You can get such information from magazines, Google, and rating agencies.

Steps to take when considering a High-risk Investment

  • Diversify your portfolio: when you have a diversified portfolio, you can reduce the effects of any one security falling abruptly.

  • Hedge your Bets: Advanced investors use various strategies such as purchasing index put options, writing covered calls and so on. This strategy can help you hedge against a downturn in the market.

  • Keep an eye on the situation:  it is important to always monitor your investments. There can be rapid changes in the international market, especially risky ones. That's why it is very important to keep an eye on your investments in other to see the dark clouds before it starts raining.
