Active Monitoring Of Risk Events
Although risk ratings are continuously monitored, risk identification is conducted on an ongoing basis, where all incoming data are checked for authenticity of their sources and for quality and comprehensiveness prior to loading into the risk calculation engine.

Velocity Country Risk Rating model is based on a modular and transparent methodology. The Risk Ratings can be adjusted and updated in real-time based on significant events, such as, regulatory regime adverse rating, narcotics sanction, terror sanction, credit downgrade, terrorist attack or corruption conviction. Moreover, the methodology is based on multiple layers, where each additional layer captures an amount of risk that is reflected in the final rating. Due to the highly modular and transparent equation driven calculations that the VCRR model employs, all risk dimensions are readily apparent to the user, providing significant flexibility in either including or excluding a specific risk dimension, based on user’s application requirements.

Risk Indices

Global Regulatory Risk Index
Global regulatory risk index for a country represents the measure of uncertainty arising out of a comprehensive set of international regulatory regimes, for which the composite quantitative measure is generated from 10 different risk components, which are - International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) I Score, INCSR II Score, Financial Secrecy Index (FSI) Score, OECD Score, FATF Score, BASEL III Score, OFAC Score, UN Sanction Score, EU Sanction Score, US Sanction Score.
Narco-Terror Risk Index
Narco-terror risk index for a country is a measure of uncertainty arising out of perceptions from investors, travelers, commercial entities, and international entities, for which the composite quantitative measure is generated from publicly available data, surveys and continuing events related to narcotics and terror related activities and sanctions that impact the country and jurisdiction in question.
Structural Terror Risk Index
Structural terror risk index is created to capture systemic, structural, and inherent uncertainties in the country arising out of actual on-the-ground issues, events and scenarios of terrorism related activities, which are not captured from formal sanctions lists, surveys, opinions and indices published globally, yet can significantly impact global anti-money laundering and terrorism combating efforts.
Systemic Corruption Risk Index
Systemic corruption risk index is created to capture the systemic and structural uncertainties in the country arising out of both perceptions and actual instances of corruptions. The composite quantitative measure of systemic corruption in the country is generated from sanctions lists, surveys, opinions.
Systemic Regulatory Risk Index
Systemic regulatory risk index is created to capture the systemic and structural uncertainties in the country arising out of ineffectiveness in regulatory frameworks, for which the composite quantitative measure is generated from an understanding of risks in the country from a lack of regulatory awareness, an absence of regulatory awareness among government officials, a lack of regulatory infrastructure, so that such an environment can directly impact the return on business investment and international exchanges in cultural, economic, and academic pursuits.
Systemic Legal Risk Index
Systemic legal risk is created to capture the systemic and structural uncertainties in the country arising out of ineffectiveness in its legal frameworks, for which the composite quantitative measure is generated from legal databases, court proceedings, surveys, and opinions related to access to justice, conviction rates, existence of applicable laws and by evaluating the relevant constitution of the country that can directly impact the return on business investment and international exchanges in cultural, economic, and academic pursuits.
