1.  Bin Laded death and how it will affects risks

This is indeed a historic moment. Bin Laden may be dead - but look at what he has wrought. Two wars which will have cost in excess of 4 Trillion. America has now bled money and treasure for over a decade and will likely bleed more in years to come. It will likely not cause al Qaeda to collapse as it became more like a franchise operation. And there may even be a brief burst of activity in response. But in the longer term, this may well be a significant negative effect for their recruiting efforts, simply because their great leader's invulnerability has been broken.

Looking from the political risk perspective, it might accelerate the unrest in Pakistan and in the broader Middle East as many new potential candidates for a vacant post will try to capitalize on the void in the al Qaeda leadership ranks by promoting their radical agendas.

By the way, if you’ve got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
