2. Partner Risk Enhancements
Introduction of the multiplier concept:
The “multiplier concept” is a tool, specific to each country, that allows to accurately reflect the CA country range into a Partner Risk equivalence. It translates the CA country range (score) into its weight equivalence at the global level (Adapted CA) without changing the risk level. With this concept, CA country scores and risk levels are better preserved.
Implementation of the New Eligibility Threshold:
The Partner risk formula has now been updated in the system in order to reflect the Global Risk range and the new eligibility threshold, which is now of 50.
Synchronization of the PPI & Partner Risk Range:
The Partner Performance Index formula has also now been updated in the system. The scores now reflect the harmonized range, which is better aligned and coherent with regard to the Partner Risk range.
