Cyber warfare, technology competition, trade wars, social movements and other forces of disruption represent major risks and opportunities. Businesses need to focus their attention on the financial, reputational and operational risks in order to make the most of opportunities.
Strategic risk is the cause of 86 percent of significant losses in market value, yet it represents only six percent of a typical organisation’s risk management spend.
Strategic risk management is an area of chronic underinvestment, at a time when the world faces unprecedented and interconnected geopolitical threats.
- Understanding and integrating political logic into operations in areas such as investment, tax and trade.
- Ensuring trade routes and supply chains are resilient to unpredictable political, climate and health events.
- Building trust and undertaking due diligence with business partners to ensure they meet legal, investor and community standards.
- Navigating uncertainty when accessing strategic markets.
