Drawing on a pool of financial data, surveys and political insights, the BSRI provides investors with a framework for tracking sovereign credit risk. The BSRI was launched in June 2011, following a BlackRock Investment Institute event on sovereign debt. The Model-Based Fixed Income Team created the BSRI as a quantitative framework to uncover and track sovereign credit risk in a changing world.
