Deutsche Bank research highlights ‘four major tail risks’ that the world faces

The Deutsche Bank Thematic Research team classifies the COVID-19 pandemic as a tail risk, and highlights that the occurrence of tail risks is more regular than most people think.

The team highlights there is a one-in-three chance that at least one of four major tail risks will occur within the next decade: a major influenza pandemic killing more than 2 million people; a globally catastrophic volcanic eruption; a major solar flare; or a global war.
