Risk Management for the Consumer Sectors


Consumer spending is a vital component of world economies, comprising in some cases up to 70% of gross domestic product (GDP). The future business prospects of consumer sector companies range widely and depend on both internal and external forces. In this case study, we highlight the application of scenario stress tests as a systematic approach to viewing potential futures and for managing emerging risks from the perspective of a global consumer sector company.

The report, written in collaboration with IRM, analyses impacts to the consumer sector and supply chains across six illustrative stress tests, including: trade dispute, geopolitical conflict, cyber attack, natural catastrophe, pandemic, and accelerated changes from the equal payment movement.
