2022 continued a challenging and stressful run of generation-defining years. Economic turmoil, COVID challenges, emerging inflationary pressures, monetary policy surprises and war in Europe placed even more pressure on countries, communities, businesses and individuals all around the world.
Who knows what 2023 will toss up. The World Economic Forum’s much awaited Global Risks Report as usual will be released in January 2023 and provides insights into the risks and opportunities ahead.
Until this report lands, a few recent articles, and reports worth reading:
- Barclays Private Bank: The top five risks in 2023. These five will be a forerunner of the WEF report.
- The Age of Megathreats- Nouriel Roubini. A bleak, medium to longer-term view of the macro and geopolitical threats. Roubini is never known for his optimism.
- 2023 Risk in Focus – Hot Topics for Internal Auditors, European Confederation of Institutes of Internal Auditing (ECIIA). A deep dive into a long list of risks to consider in 2023.
- Executive Perspectives on Top Risks for 2023 & 2032 – a joint publication from the ERM Initiative and Protiviti.
The ECIIA and ERM / Protiviti reports offer comprehensive and in-depth assessments of current and emerging risks – across the full spectrum of geopolitical, economic, covid, environment, societal and technology risks.
These reports can provide boards, executives, risk managements and other business leaders with views and perspectives on the changes underway and ahead.
