Political and Terrorism Risk – AON and Maplecroft

There are at least 2 major firms reporting on a variety of global political risk issues, which are used by various groups when planning business and the like – Verisk Maplecroft and AON.  Verist Maplecroft is a paid item while AON offers a lot for free.  Notes on them follow the images.

These groups produce maps, charts, reports, comparisons, and the like on political unrest, terrorism, etc. – things that can cause things like oil production disruptions thus dramatically changing the price of oil – or things that can see a multi-billion dollar investment be put at risk from government take-over – and the like.

Here is a sample AON report, the Terrorism Risk Map 2016

Here are some examples images.
