QUANTITATIVE IMPACT STUDIES

The Problem

The need for regular global financial risk studies presents material challenges. Cross-border issues, legal considerations, data gathering complexities and consistency and speed of analysis, among other things, all affect systemic risk studies. This is an especially difficult proposition if the implementation process has to be reinvented for each study.

GBI addresses these issues by providing an independent, non-partisan platform from which to conduct cross-border, regional or other studies in an efficient, secure and accurate way.
