A Practical Guide to the Assessment of the Vulnerability of the Non-Financial Private Sector


Author Info

  • Mario, Cuevas


The paper proposes a practical guide to the evaluation of the financial and non-financial vulnerability of the private sector (excluding financial entities). It describes step by step the sequence of issues that should be examined to assess the level of vulnerability of the private sector, including factors arising from the financial markets, country-risk, common risk management practices in the corporate sector, and the general environment for corporate restructuring and governance. The paper also provides useful references for those seeking further information on a specific aspect of the vulnerability of the non-financial private sector.
