The Fitch Solutions Operational Risk Index takes an in depth look at the challenges and/or enabling mechanisms that each business environment holds.
This webinar will unpack the Fitch Solutions Operational Risk Index, analysing country scores for major markets and presenting some key highlights across different regions around the world. The Operational Risk Index provides a holistic picture of business environment risks across 201 markets worldwide, enabling investors and key stakeholders to make country comparisons and stronger value chain risk management. This index gives a well-rounded view of the physical and institutional infrastructure risks in a country, using a wealth of comparable metrics, updated quarterly.

Topics covered will include:
