World Risk Review (WRR)

Political risks, security threats and economic uncertainty mean that the global business environment has rarely felt more volatile. Entering new territories can expose your business to a range of political and security risks.

Equally, things can change rapidly in your existing countries of operation.

With greater risk volatility there is always a significant business opportunity, provided that investors continually challenge their understanding of country and economic risk.  

Is your company proactive in monitoring the political and security risks that your company faces?

To support clients in understanding and monitoring their risk exposures, we developed World Risk Review (WRR).


World Risk Review

World Risk Review (WRR) is our proprietary country risk ratings platform, which provides risk ratings across nine insurable perils for 197 countries. At the heart of WRR are our country risk ratings, which are generated by a proprietary algorithm-based modelling system. Ratings are updated monthly and provide a forecast of the risk environment in the short to medium term. 

Essentially, WRR tells you:

  • How bad is the risk security environment
  • How risky is the country to do business in
  • How challenging is it to invest in the country

Via the platform you are able to:

  • Benchmark the risk environment across countries of interest
  • Compare and contrast the risk environment within a country across all perils

  • Assess historical risk trends 
  • Extract the data and graphics generated by WRR to create succinct and bespoke reports; WRR’s format promotes clarity for board level discussion on exposure to risk and whether insurance is needed. 

WRR is also an active part our specialist brokers’ daily activities. The platform gives brokers an enhanced knowledge of their clients’ shifting insurance and risk management requirements. In-house analysts also use WRR to support written analysis on country and political risk. We write bespoke reports for clients, providing expert insight into their risk exposure across a portfolio of countries.



The CPS analytics platforms allow clients to gain a greater insight into their credit, political and security (CPS) risks, helping guide strategic decision making and risk mitigation. Using data analytics tools, ratings models and insights, our team uses data to go beyond transactional insurance offerings, to become a trusted risk advisor to clients.

World Risk Review is available free of charge to all clients of JLT’s credit, political & security risks practice. You can register for access by contacting your account executive. If you are not currently a CPS client, you can still request 6-weeks’ complimentary access, by emailing Eleanor Smith.

You can register for 6-weeks’ complimentary access to World Risk Review here. Access to the platform will be given after a short web demonstration.
