Country Risk Profile (Guernsey Handbook)



Note: This represents the Appendix H and I in the GFSC Handbook, it also includes CRS information which does not affect the inherent risk rating. Whilst countries change very infrequently, the underlying risk drivers come and go. This is part of Amberisk's Risk Factors Module that plugs into the full accounting system. The module is fully customisable and can drive various risk outputs, can be called via api and used in other applications. This is demonstration data and Amberisk provides no guarantee as to its accuracy.
