Global Opportunity Index 2021 White Paper

The Global Opportunity Index assesses countries' attractiveness to international investors using a combination of economic, financial, institutional, and regulatory factors. These factors are divided into the following five categories:

  • Business Perception measures the constraints facing businesses and the ease for businesses to resolve disputes.

  • Economic Fundamentals captures a country's macroeconomic outlook, workforce talent, and potential for future innovation and development.

  • Financial Services measures the depth and breadth of a country's access to financial services.

  • Institutional Framework captures the extent to which a country's institutions help or hinder business activity.

  • International Standards & Policy measures how integrated a country is within the international community and the likelihood they will conform to international standards.

The interactive map below gives users the ability to compare how a country performs at the category level with their peers—determined by geographic region and income level.

Our map also includes historical Global Opportunity Index data, giving users the ability to track a country/region’s performance over the last five years (2017-2021). While the variables have changed over time to keep up with the expectations of the investment community, the underlying purpose of the ranking has remained the same.
