Credit, Political and Security Analytics

Political risks, security threats and economic uncertainty mean that the business environment has rarely felt more volatile. With greater risk volatility there is always a significant business opportunity, provided that investors continually challenge their perceptions of country and economic risk.

Our CPS analytics team work closely with the credit/performance, political and security risks clients and brokers to understand some of these more unusual risks in detail. 

Using proprietary specialist modelling and rating tools we help to inform our clients so that they are best placed to anticipate, prevent, respond and where necessary recover in the event of an incident. We find opportunities where others see challenges.




We are creative and rigorous - our analytics team works in collaboration with our credit & performance, political and security specialists to ensure all inherent risks have been considered.

Using ground-breaking modelling and rating tools, our analysts can pinpoint risks, map exposures, analyse the risk triggers, and evaluate probable maximum loss (PML) ratios across a portfolio of assets.

Our technology platforms include:

  • World Risk Review - our proprietary country risk ratings platform, which provides risk ratings across nine insurable perils for 197 countries 
  • Sunstone - our terrorism modelling tool for identifying and quantifying accumulation, concentration and portfolio risk
  • JLT Frontier - our global safe travel platform providing real-time country and travel risk information
  • Helios – a bespoke CPS system designed to capture and bring to life the data collected by CPS’ broking teams in the course of their day-to-day interactions

We also provide bespoke credit portfolio risk modelling and analysis.

Standalone and in combination these platforms provide CPS with a vast amount of data that aids in the delivery of more informed risk management options for our clients.


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.

You can register for 6-weeks’ complimentary access to World Risk Review, please email Eleanor Smith for more information. Access to the platform will be given after a short web demonstration.
