Corporate Finance, Risk, and Institutional Investors
CFOs must determine which new digital tools will improve their organization’s competitiveness—and which are mostly hype. Investors must evaluate emerging asset classes and portfolio strategies. Risk is taking novel forms, including cyber attacks and climate events, that challenge traditional approaches to risk management and oversight.
The Thought Leadership team's finance editors focus on trends in financial services, corporate governance, and investing to help decision-makers anticipate the next disruption and enhance their organization’s performance.
Examples of our work in the finance sector include:
A global survey of 1,500 CFOs and other senior finance professionals revealed best practices in strategy, collaboration, and compliance.
This flagship study showed how the lines of defense in risk management have moved since the global financial crisis.
Parallel surveys of consumers and businesses around the world shed light on adoption of electronic and mobile payments.
Central banks, sovereign wealth funds, and government pension funds are adopting agile approaches to cope with an increasingly unpredictable investment environment.
We modeled the impact of a higher US savings rate on GDP growth, future tax rates, and more.
As human lifespans lengthen, financing their longevity is a problem preoccupying leaders at the highest levels of government and industry in every major economy. Safety nets put in place decades ago show signs of stress, job markets are changing as older people stay in the work force or launch new businesses, and mature consumers are affecting spending patterns. The Thought Leadership and Economic Impact teams are exploring the implications of this global phenomenon and seeking new research partners.
