Sovereign Sustainability Analysis

371 kb


With responsible investing entering the mainstream, a sovereign credit worthiness is no longer just about dry statistics. Today it is also about a country’s resilience and preparedness to face major sustainability challenges of our time. This course is about the importance and the right way of approaching a sustainability profile of a country.

What you will learn

Sustainability factors – climate change, autocracy and populism, social injustice – are taking a centre stage in our everyday life. For long-term investors it means that their decisions will only stand the test of time if they fully account for these factors.

Our thematic course covers essential questions within four types of capital which will determine a country’s ability to repay its debts:

  • Why financial metrics alone are not enough to determine the creditworthiness of countries
  • What are the main approaches to assessing sovereign sustainability
  • Why the four types of capital have become the model of choice for international organisations and sovereign investors
  • Key elements of each type of capital and how they are connected
