Emerging Risks: Steering the Course, Seizing the Opportunity.
This study highlights several reasons why executives still experience a serious disconnect between their approaches to
assessing emerging risks and effectively using this information to make better business decisions.
A wide variety of industry groups are represented, with the heaviest concentration in consumer business, energy, manufacturing, process industries, and telecom and media. Respondents were from Europe, North America and South America, and most represent midsized companies with annual revenues between $1 billion and $3 billion.
The white paper 'Planning your way out of the financial crisis' looks at why pension funds have become such an important issue for CFOs and why companies – and pension fund trustees – should be planning to derisk their pensions. AEGON Global Pensions shows why the effect of this crisis on pensions internationally is different from the effects of previous crises. We also discuss how new reporting regulations have led to an increased visibility and understanding of pension fund risks, and reveal how different national and international regulations make it increasingly difficult for the CFOs of internationally operating companies to forecast and manage the impact of their pension funds on the corporate balance sheet.
Paying particular attention to the UK, the USA and the Netherlands (some of the largest, most mature second pillar pension markets), the white paper explores the effect of the financial crisis on the pension funds of multinational corporations.
In conclusion, we offer some useful guidelines on how to draw up an effective roadmap to derisking, making derisking more affordable in the process, and which actions can – and should – be taken now.

White paper Planning your way out of the financial crisis.pdf
”Rather than asking what users need, firms look at their existing IT infrastructure and ask what they can bolt on to improve the results. In the end, they are making systems more complicated and approaching a point of paralysis.”
— GARP Report 2010
GARP recently conducted a survey which concluded that risk managers are often frustrated by multiple data stores and the difficulty in arriving at a single version of the truth. This is often the result of early adoption of the existing technology at the time and bolting things on as subsequent needs arise.
The technology has improved rapidly over the last few years and the regulatory climate is changing just as fast. Find out more about how risk management technology can meet post-crisis reporting requirements and reduce costs.
Other Key Findings:
Fewer than half the firms are pleased with the way their database technology is reporting but nearly as many don’t think it requires an upgrade
57% said they only update their risk management database overnight while businesses are starting to require on-demand analysis in real-time.
Enterprise and global views are being requested in a format that is comprehensible for a non-risk specialist.
Business and IT should be better engaged to capitalise on new technological solutions for future, cost-effective risk management needs.
