The top global risks for 2017

Nota del Editor de AECHILE
Va introducción de la referencia
“El entorno empresarial global es más riesgoso que en años anteriores, pero muchas organizaciones no están dedicando más tiempo o recursos para la gestión del riesgo en los próximos 12 meses, de acuerdo con una nueva encuesta global.

Cada una de las 10 principales riesgos de los efectos percibidos de 2017 creció en comparación con el año anterior, según los encuestados en una encuesta realizada por la firma de consultoría Protiviti y la Iniciativa de Gestión de Riesgos del Estado de Carolina del Norte Universidad Empresa.

La encuesta entrevistó a 735 miembros de la junta y ejecutivos – 407 de los Estados Unidos y 328 de otras regiones – en 30 riesgos que enfrentan sus organizaciones. Los principales riesgos, y su calificación en una escala de 10 puntos de impacto, son los siguientes:”

 


A year ago, regulatory changes and scrutiny edged out economic conditions on the list of top risks because of a higher percentage of “potential impact” ratings, which is a rating of six or higher on the scale. This year, economic conditions pulled ahead, with 72% of respondents saying the economy would have significant impact. Regulation, labeled a significant risk by 66% of respondents, also was a top risk in the 2015 survey, and concerns about regulatory requirements are often listed as the top challenge facing U.S. businesses in a quarterly survey of finance executives by the AICPA.

The likelihood that organizations will devote additional resources to risk management has dipped for the second consecutive year, though the decrease was slight. On a 10-point scale, where 1 is “unlikely to make changes” and 10 is “extremely likely to make changes,” the 2017 rating is 6.0, down from 6.2 in 2015 and 6.1 in 2016.

Yet, the ratings went up when executives were asked about the magnitude and severity of risks they expected to face: 6.2 in 2017, compared with 6.1 in 2016 and 6.0 in 2015. That 10-point scale had 1 as “extremely low” and 10 as “extensive.”

The survey said that finding, that the magnitude and severity of risks is rising but possible responses seem to be dropping, could indicate that organizations are facing resource constraints or are satisfied with the sufficiency of prior-year investments in risk management.

Risk categories

CFOs and CEOs see a riskier environment relative to other management members, rating each of the 30 risks 4.5 or higher on the survey’s 10-point scale. Chief information officers rated the most risks, 12, as having significant impact. On the other hand, board members rated 18 of 30 risks as having less significant impacts.

Five of the top 10 risks are operational risks, three are strategic risks, and two are macroeconomic in nature.
