• The Report

    The Accenture 2013 Global Risk Management Study finds nearly all surveyed firms give higher priority to risk management now than two years ago. But there is still much room for improvement. There are large gaps between expectations of the risk function’s role in meeting broader goals and its perceived performance.

  • Risk Mastery

    Risk Masters comprise 8 percent of survey participants and have particularly well developed risk capabilities. They are more likely to have a Chief Risk Officer (CRO) in charge of risk, and their risk owners report more regularly to their boards on risk issues. They also have higher expectations for the risk function’s role.
