Oxford Economics created a benchmarking tool for PwC based on the results of a survey of 1,000 corporate risk professionals. The tool allows executives to compare their risk views and practices with those of their peers in five key areas:
How do organisations manage specific types of risk?
How critical are specific risks over the next 18 months?
What steps are organisations taking over the next 18 months to enhance their approach to risk management?
What benefits have been gained by taking an integrated approach to risk management?
What are the top drivers increasing risk?
Global Metro Monitor: The Path to Economic Recovery
Client: The Brookings Institution
The Global Metro Monitor assessed the economic performance of 150 metropolitan areas worldwide. The report’s focus was on the recent impact of the Great Recession. Because data was not readily available for the period being studied, we worked with Brookings to develop a model using three main quantitative indicators:
gross value added (GVA)
Using this data on economic output and employment, we ranked performance among 150 of the world’s largest metropolitan economies, located in 53 countries, from 1993 to 2010. From this analysis, we were also able examine the relationship between metropolitan economic performance and other potentially important metro characteristics, such as
housing price shocks
