  1. 1. Research SummaryRisk Management Consulting Marketplace 2008–2011Key Trends, Profiles and Forecasts Contact: Bob Sutherland +1-603-924-6390 ext. 667By: John Farrell, Senior Analyst – Kennedy Information Jess Scheer, Associate Director – Kennedy Information Damien Blenkinsopp, Senior Analyst – Kennedy Information Derek Smith, Director, Research – Kennedy InformationMarket Trends OverviewIn a fast-paced, global economy, client organizations are struggling to reduce the threat of risks related toeverything from corporate governance, regulatory compliance, and economic factors, to increasedcompetition, technological change, as well as man-made/natural disasters, which can all impact bottom-lineperformance. Moreover, our accelerated business climate is transforming risk management from a periodicexercise in financial reporting to an ongoing endeavor that measures and analyzes many complex businessissues, especially as companies expand into new businesses and geographies. Accordingly, the demand forrisk management consulting services is growing rapidly. In fact, this consulting segment generated nearly$29 billion in revenues in 2007 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of more than 17%through 2011 – about twice as fast as the overall consulting market.Risk Management Consulting Market (Size and Growth 2007–2011) $60 CAGR 17.2% $40 $20 $0 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 Source: Kennedy Information, Risk Management Consulting Marketplace 2008–2011Risk Management Consulting Marketplace 2008–2011: Key Trends, Profiles and Forecasts cuts throughthe ambiguity that is often associated with risk as a management discipline by clearly defining the specificsegments of the risk consulting market.

  2. 2. _________________Research Summary: Risk Management Consulting Marketplace 2008–2011research also provides an in-depth assessment of the risk consulting landscape, key market trends, and majoropportunities. In addition, detailed profiles of some of the world’s top risk consulting practices highlight thestrengths and weakness of each firm’s offering, based on market approach, service type, and geography.“The speed of change is clearly accelerating and companies are looking to be more flexible.Risks are heightening in relationship to products, country operations and partnerships. Inthis market, companies need to proactively merge strategic decisions and risk managementover time. They must keep changing ahead of the curve.” Walt Shill Managing Director, Strategy practice AccentureRisk Consulting OpportunitiesDespite the fact that every company is potentially vulnerable to some kind of risk, one of the keyopportunities for risk consulting work is the wave of regulations tying personal accountability to corporategovernance. While Sarbanes-Oxley holds C-level executives personally liable for the validity of financialstatements – compelling organizations to closely monitor financial metrics in relation to a wide variety ofoperational, strategic, competitive, and economic risks across the enterprise – risk is also an emerging issuefor an increasing number of client industries, especially those facing ever-stricter workforce andenvironmental regulations, stiffer competition, or rapid technological change. In addition, for thoseexpanding overseas, globalization creates a wide variety of geopolitical risks.A key trend creating solid consulting opportunities in the risk market is the data suggesting that many largecorporations are not prepared to effectively deal with risk. Many lack formal risk management programs,most do not look at how previous risk events may have impacted past performance, and few create risk-adjusted forecasts and plans. Consulting firms with a clear understanding of these trends are in a strongposition to help clients identify, prioritize, control, and mitigate risk on an ongoing and long-term basis.Kennedy’s analysis in this research discusses these drivers to identify the firms in the strongest position todeliver against their risk-based consulting needs.Risk consulting provides particularly broad-based opportunities because: • Risks are easily understood but complicated to resolve internally. • Liabilities affect companies of all sizes, shapes, and geographies. • Solutions require organization-specific planning and customization.Key Risk Consulting Market Drivers • Corporate governance • Disasters (man-made and natural) • Government regulations • Legal/compliance liabilities • Globalization • Insurance requirements • Financial trends • Technological advancements • Economic crises • Data security/privacy issues • Increased competition • Ratings agency assessments • Environmental issues • Emerging role of chief risk officer © 2008 KENNEDY INFORMATION, INC.
