Escalating trade tensions are expected to continue throughout 2020 and will result in persistent global political and economic uncertainty for multinational businesses, according to a new report from Marsh.

The Political Risk Map 2020,produced by Marsh JLT Specialty’s Credit Specialties Practice, is based on data from Fitch Solutions, a leading source of independent political, macroeconomic, financial, and industry risk analysis.

Findings from this year’s Political Risk Map 2020 echo the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2020 earlier this year, which found that economic confrontations between major powers are among the most concerning risks for 2020.
