European risk executives represented 30 percent of the total survey pool of the Accenture 2011 Global Risk Management Study. Nearly two-thirds of these executives state that risk management is, to a great extent, a higher priority for their companies than it was two years ago. European executives are particularly concerned about regulatory risk—half of the respondents said that regulatory risk is significantly increasing in their industries, higher than the global average of 39 percent and the North American and Asia Pacific averages of 36 percent and 29 percent, respectively.
However, fewer European firms have implemented comprehensive Enterprise Risk Management programs—52 percent have such programs in place, compared with 72 percent of Asia Pacific companies, although another 35 percent of European companies intend to have ERM in place within the next two years.
European companies are somewhat more adept than their peers around the world in using risk analytics tools and, indeed, their investment plans in the coming years are focused on related areas including IT infrastructure, and data quality management and architecture.
