We have created our stock risk ratings to indicate the potential risk of stock investments at a glance.

Our goal is to provide you with easily understandable and intuitive stock risk assessments.

As a result, we have combined all the relevant data into a single risk score per market.



We designed our stock risk ratings to indicate the potential risk of global, regional, and country-based stock market investments on an aggregated basis in percentage points.


Generally, a 60% or higher risk rating indicates high-risk and unfavorable investment conditions. A higher risk score means you should consider staying away from such markets, or if you have already invested, put your risk management skills in action to protect your investment.


A 40% or lower risk rating signals a low-risk market with favorable market conditions for stock investments.

Please find more details on our risk benchmarks at our risk rating overview.


We provide the following fifty stock market risk ratings:
