What is Business Pulse about?This report identifies and explores the top 10 risks and opportunities facing companies around the world. It is based on a survey of 641 executives from more than 20 countries and across a wide range of sectors, followed by a series of in-depth interviews with senior executives at major organizations. A long list of risks and opportunities for the 2013–15 period were initially identified by experts during a preliminary phase of research. Survey respondents and interview participants were then asked to rank these risks and opportunities in terms of the importance for their business.

Top 10 risks and opportunities

The risk and opportunity radars (see next page) allow us to present a snapshot of the current top 10 risks and opportunities for global businesses. At the center of the radar are the risks and opportunities that our survey respondents felt were having the biggest impact on major organizations worldwide. Arrows indicate the extent to which the ranking is expected to increase, decrease or remain the same between 2013 and 2015.
