2014 AFP Risk Survey

2014 Risk Survey cover
In October 2013, AFP conducted the third survey of the risk series in partnership with Oliver Wyman. The 2014 AFP Risk Survey concentrates on how companies are integrating risk information into their business and financial planning. The survey generated 554 responses from senior-level corporate practitioners, representing a wide range of organizations both publicly and privately owned and of varying sizes.

 The 2014 AFP Risk Survey report summarizes survey findings and provides financial professionals’ insights on the risk environment, their organizations’ response to the risk environment, the opportunities for better risk management through a stronger collaboration with the FP&A function.

AFP thanks Oliver Wyman for being a valued partner on the AFP Risk Survey series. In addition to underwriting support, Oliver Wyman provided AFP with subject matter expertise.

Key findings include:
  • Eighty-four percent of respondents report that their organizations are exposed to the same or higher level of uncertainty today than three years ago.
  • Over 90 percent of financial professionals note that risk management is either “extremely important” or “very important” at their companies’ executive management level.
  • The most common action organizations are taking to counter current and emerging business risks is increasing the focus on culture and awareness within organizations.
  • The primary challenges to organizations’ ability to forecast metrics are integrating risk and forecasting data to strategic decision making and capturing relevant data within the company.
