Sector Risk Scores

The Country Risk assessment interacts with GCR ratings in four ways. Firstly, the country risk scores create the foundation for the Anchor Credit Evaluator (the mapping table, see the Criteria for the GCR Ratings Framework here). Secondly, the country risk score/ assessment acts as an anchor to the GCR Risk Score and therefore ultimately to the GCR issuer ratings. Thirdly, the country risk assessment acts as a hurdle (or more accurately as a series of hurdles, differing according to industry) that limits uplift away from an entity’s operating environment (the combination of the country risk score and the financial sector risk score). Fourthly, the country risk score (as a key part of the operating environment score) provides a level from which government support can be applied for each industry.

GCR ratings utilises the sector risk score in conjunction with the country risk score, to determine the operating environment risk score for each individual sector within the country. The sector risk scores are intended to provide users with an overview of the major factors that impact GCR’s assessment of the relative risk of each sector in the local economy.
