Clements Worldwide Risk Index Reveals Top Losses for 2017

The Clements Worldwide Risk Index Winter / Spring 2017 edition has launched and reveals that 1 in 4 global organizations are being impacted by political violence.

The survey, compiled twice each year, found the number of organizations suffering the effects of a political violence event nearly doubled from a year ago, up 90 percent over the Clements report issued last spring. 

The leading concern for businesses when it came to political violence was the uncertainty around elections and protests associated with voting. Some 27.2% of respondents said they were worried about the effect of elections in countries where they operate, up from 19.1% the year before.
