The position of Financial Economist is in the Country Risk and Economic Analysis Division (CREA) and is under the direct supervision of the Vice President of CREA. CREA is primarily responsible for assessing the external credit worthiness of approximately 160 countries. In that capacity, CREA participates in two important country risk forums: 1) it serves as the Secretariat for the Inter-Agency Country Risk Assessment System (ICRAS), whose risk ratings estimate potential loss levels for all USG international loans, guarantees, and insurance; 2) it is a major participant in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Developments (OECD) Country Risk Experts Group, which determine risk classifications that set minimum risk premia for all member export credit agencies. In addition, CREA is responsible for researching country risk methodological issues and making recommendations intended to refine the country risk rating process. Finally, CREA conducts economic analysis of issues pertinent to the operations of Ex-Im Bank.
