FRISK® Stress Index Brochure

Download (5.47 MB)

The new FRISK® Stress Index is a fast, powerful way to see risk levels of industries, countries or your portfolio.

It compares the probability of failure of groups of companies (such as an industry, a country or your own portfolio) from 2007 to today. 

It's free. Subscribers can see specific company names driving risk levels and analyze their own portfolios.

The index:

  • Provides an immediate snapshot of the overall financial stress of a group of companies, and compares it to the start of the Great Recession
  • Highlights risk in major industries and countries around the world
  • Shows financial stress trends and levels from 2007 to today
  • Provides a reliable, fact-based assessment of financial risk, updated daily

The index is based on the same underlying methodology as our 96% accurate proprietary FRISK® score, which is calculated using current financial statements, stock market volatility, market capitalization and, when available, bond agency ratings from S&P, Moody’s and Fitch.
