About this paper
A sluggish global economy, an industry in transition and geopolitical shocks like the tsunami in Japan and the political unrest in the Middle East have made 2011 a tough year for risk managers in financial services. But how tough? And what are FS firms doing to make their risk management more effective? To find out the answers the Economist Intelligence Unit, on behalf of SAS, conducted a survey of senior risk executives in the financial services industry around the world during Q1 2011. This is the fourth in a series of SAS sponsored reports covering issues in Global Risk Management and four years on, much has changed or has it?
