Risk/Reward Ratings

Angola jumps to fifth position, from 13th, on our Risk/Reward Ratings (RRR) table for Q113. The country benefited from the revision to our ratings methodology, with new factors such as real private consumption growth and broadband growth boosting its country risks and industry rewards ratings respectively. Angola is joined in the top half of our table by Botswana, Namibia and Zambia. Mozambique is the lowest ranking country, sitting in 20th position. Its overall score is depressed by relatively weak scores across our four ratings categories.
