Energy, Infrastructure Quarterly Valuation Update: Country Risk Assessments

By Carrie Reid

Thursday 18th January 2024

Join Julian Macmillan, Director, Mazars – Energy, Infrastructure & Environment, for this webinar where we will delve into the crucial topic of valuations and the importance of considering country risk.

While it is essential to factor in the risk premium associated with a particular country, it is equally important to recognize that asset-specific factors can influence the size of this premium. For instance, infrastructure and energy assets may be fully exposed to the risks of their host country, but there are instances where assets remain insulated from local economies and political risks. As a result, valuers must exercise judgment when assessing the country risk premium.

Throughout this webinar, we will explore the various types of risks covered by the country risk premium, how they are calculated, and potential adjustments that may be necessary.

What will be covered:

  • Discuss what country risk premium (CRP) represents
  • Look at how CRP applied
  • What risks does CRP cover
  • What adjustments can/should be made to CRP when valuing overseas assets.
