Global Risk Management Report - still not all companies are well prepared

The aim was to bring to light the cur­rent risk ma­nage­ment chal­len­ges and some of the po­ten­tial so­lu­ti­ons to those chal­len­ges. There also have been gathe­red the views of Ne­xia mem­ber firms on this sub­ject in re­la­tion to their cli­ents.

Among the key fin­dings were that awa­ren­ess of risk ma­nage­ment is cle­arly on the in­crease. Al­most half of com­pa­nies sur­veyed ex­pect to in­crease spen­ding on risk ma­nage­ment in the com­ing year. This is sup­por­ted by the views of the Ne­xia mem­ber firms sur­veyed – 63% ex­pect that the le­vel of risk ma­nage­ment ser­vices they pro­vide to in­crease in the year ahead.

Fur­ther, over half of Ne­xia mem­ber firms be­lieve that the risk pro­file in their coun­try has in­crea­sed in the last year, re­flec­ting cur­rent wi­des­pread po­li­ti­cal, eco­no­mic, and so­cial un­cer­tain­ties.Cle­arly, risk ma­nage­ment has be­come cri­ti­cally im­port­ant as busi­nes­ses are chal­len­ged to re­main com­pe­ti­tive while grap­pling with un­cer­tain ope­ra­tio­nal and fi­nan­cial con­di­ti­ons.
