Global Risk Landscape 2018

Agile and innovative businesses are the best placed to manage and mitigate business risks, as discovered through the results from a survey with over 500 C-suite and senior risk experts across the globe surveyed for the Global Risk Landscape 2018 report.

The global business environment continues to change at pace. Digital technologies are providing new and faster ways of developing and delivering products and services. Supply chains, legal and regulatory frameworks and political factors are all changing as a result. The increasing pace of change and the volatility of risk represent potential threats to business.

Discover why businesses that react to risks and opportunities quickest and most effectively through agility and innovation will thrive and how the world’s leading risk experts plan to overcome the risks they face.

Regional risk & whitepapers

The risk landscape across regions 

Risk Advisory teams across the Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEA, deliver insight and advice on the local risks affecting their markets. 

Talent and regulatory risks dominate business concerns

Three quarters of business leaders in the Americas place Regulatory and People Risks at the top of the list of risks to their businesses. However, over half of business leaders (52%) feel their business is sufficiently future-proofed to weather significant changes in their external environment.

A perfect risk storm ahead?

Businesses across the Asia Pacific today face a complex set of interrelated risks. Disruptive factors such as changing customer behaviour, new regulation and the speed of technological change all weigh heavily on the minds of business leaders.

Geopolitical risk threatens business performance

Nearly one in five (19%) of the EMEA business leaders in our survey identify their company as being at major risk of significant business model disruption, with no future-proofing strategy in place. Although executives in Europe are more confident in their ability to weather disruption – only 10% identify themselves as being most at risk – these figures rise sharply for businesses in the Middle East (36%) and Africa (44%).
