Political risks improve in emerging markets, says Marsh


Several emerging economies present increasing growth opportunities for global energy companies, due to decreases in political risk and improvements in regulation, according to Marsh.

These economies include Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Russia, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. There are also less developed, more high risk countries like DR Congo, Mongolia and Myanmar that are demonstrating improvements in their legal and regulatory business environment.

“While fast growing economies present new and exciting investment opportunities for global oil and gas companies, other regions around the world remain geopolitical risk hotspots that need to be properly monitored and managed,” says Jim Pierce, chairman of Marsh’s Global Energy Practice.
