The World Investment and Political Risk report examines the overall
trends in political risk perceptions, foreign investment intentions,
and longer-term demand for political risk insurance (PRI), especially
in emerging economies.
The research conducted for the report includes an Economist
Intelligence Unit survey of multinational investors that addresses
their risk perceptions for developing countries in the short and medium
term. It addresses foreign direct investment (FDI) in the Middle East
and North Africa in light of the Arab Spring, as well as the reaction
of multinational enterprises to those developments.
The 2011 edition provides an in-depth analysis on the risk of
expropriation—perceived risk, actual dimensions, and preferred
containment strategies. It found that the probability of disputes
between governments and foreign investors is materially increased by an
economic shock and/or significant political shift.
Finally, the report focuses on the PRI market and how it can support
investment into developing countries. The survey found that heightened
global risk perceptions have prompted investors to employ a wide
variety of risk-mitigation tools, including PRI. PRI issuance has
grown, not only in absolute terms, but also relative to FDI.
