The global landscape
We are pleased to have collaborated with Winmark to produce this year’s edition of the Corporate Risk Radar report (previously known as 'Looking Glass'). The annual report seeks the opinions of General Counsel, their in-house legal teams and the senior board and C-suite decision makers they work with, on the risk landscape their organisations face and their ability to navigate it effectively.
To understand how business leaders are addressing this daunting situation, we consulted over 200 Board Directors and CEOs, General Counsel (GCs) and other senior C-Suite executives from multiple sectors and across all global regions; and is our largest sample size in the study’s history.
This year’s findings see the return of some risks that many organisations will not have experienced before, such as high inflation, trade wars and geopolitical tensions that pose a threat of nuclear conflict.
