Economic and Geopolitical Risk Expertise

Untitled Document

EPRE is a subscription service that provides a framework for forecasting economic and geopolitical risks in 164 countries through regularly revised ratings, in-depth profiles and event-driven updates. Designed and delivered by a joint venture between Control Risks and Oxford Economics, one of the world’s leading economic forecast consultancies, EPRE employs advanced visualisation tools and can be customised to fit an organisation’s own risk profile.

POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC RISK AS ONE. EPRE’s combination of political and economic risk forecasts – each presented with market-leading expertise – helps anticipate emerging risks, pinpoint the timing of risk events and gauge their impact.

RELEVANT AND CUSTOMISABLE. Control Risks and Oxford Economics have isolated the key variables that are most relevant for assessing political and economic change in any country. Our economists and analysts use these metrics to create proprietary forecast data and analysis. EPRE subscribers can calibrate the weighting of scores to reflect their own view of risk and challenge our assumptions.

DYNAMIC INFORMATION. Forecasts for 67 key countries are updated once a quarter to ensure that our forecasts remain current. In addition to these regular updates, EPRE includes alerts to major, country-specific risk events that may affect our outlook.

DATA ON-THE-GO AND READY-TO-GO. The service is easy to navigate, features clean, cutting edge graphics, and is optimised for viewing on tablets, laptops and desktops. EPRE assets are easy to adapt, export and download, making comprehensive reports ready with a few clicks.
