SECTOR RISK

At the end of every quarter, Euler Hermes updates its sector risk ratings, which measure the risk of non-payment for 20 sectors in 70 countries, with a view of demand, profitability, financing and competition risks in each country. The result is a 4-scale risk level from Low - sound fundamentals with a very favorable or fairly good outlook - to High - imminent or ongoing crisis.
