The annual Global Fraud Survey, commissioned by Kroll and carried out by the Economist Intelligence Unit, polled more than 800 senior executives worldwide from a broad range of industries and functions in July and August 2010. Where Economist Intelligence Unit analysis has been quoted in this report, it has been headlined as such. Kroll also undertook its own analysis of the results. As in previous years, these represented a wide range of industries, including notable participation from Financial Services; and Professional Services; as well as Retail and Wholesale; Technology, Media and Telecoms; Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals; Travel, Leisure, and Transportation; Consumer Goods; Construction, Engineering, and Infrastructure; Natural Resources; and Manufacturing. Respondents were senior, with 47% at C-suite level. Fifty one percent of participants came from companies with annual revenues of over $500 million. Respondents this year included 29% from North America, 25% from Europe, and 24% from the Asia-Pacific region (of whom 47% – more than in previous years – were from China and India); and 11% each from Latin America and the Middle East & Africa.
