Learn to Assess Risk Like your Job Depends on it!

Investing in a foreign country is rife with risks that can effect your business. In today’s increasingly global, and increasingly unstable business environment, country risk analysis allows firms to determine how to allocate their investments with the optimal risk-return trade-off. In this session, we will discuss recent events that have changed the terms of global trade, including the increase in trade barriers, tarriffing, and expropriation. Professor Lauren Regan will walk the audience through the factors that are often used to measure country risk, and discuss forecasts for doing business in the global economy in 2015 and beyond.
