Marsh & McLennan Companies’ Global Risk Center has published a new report, The Emerging Risks Quandary. Many companies struggle to articulate the precise relevance of global and emerging risks to their business, and are poorly organized to make timely decisions. This report explores what impedes corporate efforts and sets out how companies can blend creativity and pragmatism to look beyond predictable and controllable risks to complex uncertainties that have the potential to generate more than mere volatility in corporate earnings.
The paper contains insights from Oliver Wyman, Marsh and Guy Carpenter. It can be read in conjunction with the 2016 Global Risks Report, released in the run-up to the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, to help identify the effectiveness of risk management arrangements and evaluate the issues that most threaten companies today.
