Risk/Reward Ratings

Botswana is ranked 6th in our Risk/Reward Ratings (RRR) table for Q412. The country's weak Industry Rewards score, partly due to increasing saturation in the mobile market, is counterbalanced by a strong Country Risks score (the highest in the region), which reflects its political stability. Zambia and Angola are the other countries in our Southern Africa report that make it into the top half of our RRR table this quarter. Zimbabwe is in 25th position on our table as it continues to be held back by a weak Industry Risks score that highlights considerable external influence on regulatory decisions and the government's significant interest in major service providers in the country.
