Cambridge Risk Report - Risk Management for the Consumer Sectors

Consumer spending is a vital component of world economies, comprising in some cases up to 70% of gross domestic product (GDP). The future business prospects of consumer sector companies range widely and depend on both internal and external forces. In this case study, we highlight the application of scenario stress tests as a systematic approach to viewing potential futures and for managing emerging risks from the perspective of a global consumer sector company.

Socrates Coudounaris, BEng (Hons) MSc FCII CFIRM, Chair of the IRM explains:

"This latest guidance paper from the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies focuses attention onto the consumer goods sector - an area of vital importance for economies in both the developed and developing world. IRM is delighted to be supporting this work on behalf of our worldwide membership and the wider global risk community."
