Country Ratings

Be sure you understand the effects political and economic situations can have on your import/export business.

Country Ratings give you an idea of the average corporate payment default risk (repayment of credit) associated with trading with companies based in a particular country.

Countries are rated from A1 (steady political and economic environment is likely to further the already excellent payment record of companies. Very low risk probability) to D (extremely unsteady political or economic conditions are likely to worsen an already very bad payment record).

Be aware though, that bad companies can exist no matter what the political/economic status of a country is. Likewise good companies exist in apparantly high risk countries.
