Top 10 Countries by risk rating: Africa

13 Aug 2022

ABiQ provides a risk rating for each country in Africa. The overall country risk rating is a composite rating. This composite rating is a measure that outlines to what extent economic, political, financial, health, security and other factors can affect investing and doing business in a country. The rating ranges from 1-10, with 1 being the best possible rating, and 10 being the worst possible rating. 

For many years, Africa has been classified as high-risk. Political instability, civil war, corruption, and financial instability has plagued the continent and alienated investors. With the dawn of the digital age and mobile connectivity, Africa is considered to be the last frontier. At ABiQ, we have built an Overall Country Risk rating that encapsulates the various areas of risk and ranks markets accordingly. The Overall Country Risk rating is updated every quarter, to reflect changing conditions within each of the markets covered by ABiQ. 

Our aim is to provide a regular overview of African countries for our clients. ABiQ provides a transparent method to evaluate and rank African countries and their risk ratings. We consider this an opportunity to provide key insights into Africa for prospective investors.
