2022 Political Risk Survey Report

How are leading companies managing today’s political risks?

By Sam Wilkin | March 31, 2022

Our survey shows increasing concerns about the political risk consequences of a deteriorating relationship between the East and West.
Credit and Political Risk

Overall, the survey results this year painted a picture of globalized companies surprised to be caught between geopolitical competitors.

What has changed is not the identification of the threat from geostrategic competition, but rather, the corporate consensus that this issue is likely to have serious financial repercussions for global businesses. Results from all areas of the survey underlined the new consensus. Significant majorities of respondents believed that trends towards geostrategic competition and economic decoupling between China and the West would intensify in the future. A majority of respondents expressed concern that private companies would be impacted in international diplomatic disputes.

We hope you enjoy this 5th annual edition of our political risk survey and find the contributions of these expert analysts to be as valuable and thought-provoking as we have.
