In May 2009, The Economist Intelligence Unit surveyed 364 executives around the world about their approach to risk management and corporate governance.
The survey was sponsored by ACE and KPMG. Respondents represent a wide range of industries and regions, with roughly one-third each from Asia and Australasia, North America and Western Europe. Approximately 50% of respondents represent businesses with annual revenue of more than US$500m. All respondents have influence over, or responsibility for, strategic decisions on risk management at their companies and around 57% are C-level or board-level executives.
