Too good to fail? New challenges for risk management in financial services is an Economist Intelligence Unit report that examines the steps banks and insurers around the world are taking to reinforce their risk management capabilities against the backdrop of an improving economic environment. The report is sponsored by SAS. The Economist Intelligence Unit bears sole responsibility for the content of this report. The findings and views expressed in this report do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsor.
Our research for this report drew on two main initiatives:
We conducted an online survey of 315 executives from around the world in March 2011. Approximately one-half of the respondents in the survey are C-level executives and nearly as many represent financial institutions with US $25 billion or more in assets under management. All respondents have a primary responsibility for risk management.
To complement the survey results, the Economist Intelligence Unit also conducted a programme of qualitative research that included in-depth interviews with a range of experts and senior executives. The report was written by Rob Mitchell. We would like to thank all those who cooperated with us on this research for their time and insight.
