Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a methodology for analyzing corporate investment risk in the context of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The research methodology is based on the use of regression analysis and scenario modeling of pandemic investment leverage. The contribution of this study is the proposed methodological approach to assessing investment risks in the context of the spread of coronavirus. Regression analysis made it possible to establish the existence of a sufficient relationship between foreign direct investment (FDI) in the studied countries and the level of pandemic investment leverage. This is the result of the stabilization in FDI sector and confirms the effectiveness of the studied countries in a given direction in the context of a pandemic.
