Crisis Sentiment Index Rises Two Points in December

Sat, 25 Jun 2011 09:51:42 GMT

The Crisis Sentiment Index (CSI) is a regular assessment of the status of the financial/economic crisis around the world by senior executives and board members who are involved in risk management. Reported on a scale of 0 to 100, a reading of 75 indicates “normal conditions”.

During the past quarter, negative sentiment from emerging and accelerating European sovereign risks was offset by modest improvements in credit availability and a reduction in fear, according to our survey respondents. As a result the Crisis Sentiment Index (CSI) for December 2010 rose two points to a reading of 39. At this level, roughly half of the decline in the CSI that followed the start of the Greece sovereign crisis has been recovered. Still, the index remains more than 35 pointsaway from “normal conditions”.
