Using data from the Stern Business School at New York University (USA) it is possible to estimate the level of risk in several countries, including Portugal (2.9%).

Among the 13 countries with the lowest risk (0%), taking the USA as a reference, are Canada, Australia, Singapore and New Zealand and several European nations, such as Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden, according to a report by idealista.

In the opposite direction are five countries, which share the highest risk (24.8%): Belarus, Lebanon, Venezuela, Sudan and Syria.

There are variations in risk between different countries, which can be influenced by geopolitical factors, such as political risk, whether they are in an early phase of growth or have stable property rights. But political, legal and economic risks are also analysed.
