How to measure the risk of corruption? Digital roundtable


Date: Thursday 9. December 2021

Time: 14:00-15:00 (Oslo time)

The question if and how corruption risk can be measured is highly relevant for both practitioners and academics. Arne Portmann and Gabor Sterbinszky from NHH have written an interesting master thesis on the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global and its exposure to corruption through the companies the fund is invested in. They have also developed a measurement tool for estimating the risk of corruption for companies by focusing on the existence of corruption red flags. One of their key findings is that the risk of corruption for a company and the corruption risk of its country are poorly correlated.

Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM) and Transparency International Norway invite to a digital roundtable where Portmann and Sterbinszky will present their findings. After the presentation, NBIM will engage in a conversation with the students and there will be time for Q&A with the audience.

We hope this can be an interesting discussion for both investors and companies exposed to corruption risks, as well as for others with interest in the topic.
