The Definitive Report on Risk – Aon’s 2009 Global Risk Management Survey

In a rapidly changing and increasingly challenging world, every organization is facing more complex risks that carry greater severity. The ability to understand, track and adjust to worldwide trends can mean the difference between success and failure.

In October and November 2008, Aon worked with leading organizations around the world in more than 40 countries and across 31 industries to find out their views of emerging and escalating business risks, and the steps they are taking to address these challenges. Our experts have since studied and analyzed the findings, and compiled Aon's 2009 Global Risk Management Survey report.

According to the survey respondents, the Top 10 most pressing risks are:
  1. Economic slowdown
