Country Risk Classification
The Hungarian EXIM classifies almost 174 countries and examines the risks. The purpose of the country risk rating is to disclose all the risks that can support the clients in making informed decisions about their potential international business activity.
EXIM’s country risk methodology consist of analysing hundreds of quantitative and qualitative economic indicators to provide the best understanding of the political, security, business environment, economic, commercial, financing and payment risks of the particular country.
EXIM’s country risk methodology classifies each country on a scale of 1 to 7. Each classification shows the risk level of the given relations; i.e. category “1” means relations with the lowest risks, countries in category “6” can be financed and insured on a case-by-case basis, while category “7” indicates relations with extremely high risks that cannot be financed and insured.
It should be noted that country limits established in relation with certain relations on the basis of the country risk classification do not function as dedicated credit limits; they only define the maximum amount of potential loans to certain countries.
