Compass by RIWI
and David Woo
RIWI and David Woo Unbound have created three unique and complementary Indexes that gauge the extent of global political, macroeconomic, and geopolitical risk: A Military Conflict Risk Index in five key geopolitical conflict regions, a Cold War Two Index in Russia, the US, and China, and a Polarization Risk Index in the G7 economies. Collectively, they provide investors, policymakers, and other decision makers with otherwise unavailable datafeeds that can allow them to confirm and refute hypotheses and confidently navigate these risks.
The Cold War II Index tracks – in Russia, the US, and China – six public sentiment indicators related to the geopolitical conflict and five current and future economic conditions indicators. The Index runs 24/7 and, unlike typical polls in these countries, draws on broad-based, anonymous, non-incented opinion.
The Military Conflict Risk Index measures, on a continuous, real-time basis, the perceptions of military conflict intensification from citizens in five major geopolitical conflicts: Russia-Ukraine, China-Taiwan, India-Pakistan, Iran-Israel, and South Korea-North Korea.
The Polarization Risk Index measures, on a quarterly basis, polarization within each G7 country as a key indicator of political stability. The Index uniquely draws on broad-based, anonymous opinion, minimizing biases associated with conventional polling.
