Cambridge global risk index 2019 executive summary

Source(s):  Centre for Risk Studies, University of Cambridge

The research by the Centre for Risk Studies is unique in making an annual qualification of the potential GDP impact of unpredictable shocks on the world's most prominent cities. The 2019 update to the Global Risk Index sees a uniform rise in GDP@Risk across all the 279 cities that make up the index and more significant increases in risk for urban centres. 

GDP@Risk is a calculation of each city's economic output and its exposure to particular threats associated with its geography and type of economy offset by its resilience in recovering from them. The highlights of the 2019 update include the continued rise of cyber attack risk, the continued likelihood of commodity price volatility, and sustained levels of high risk from geopolitical events and financial crises. 

Overall, the Centre for Risk Studies' analysis shows a 5.6 per cent increase in GDP@Risk from 2018 to 2019. GDP@Risk is a calculation of each city's economic output and its exposure to particular threats associated with its geography and type of economy offset by its resilience in recovering from them.
