Deloitte recognised as a global leader in Strategic Risk Consulting by ALM

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 11 April 2018—Deloitte announced today that ALM Intelligence has ranked it as a global leader in the report, entitled Strategic Risk Consulting 2018. Naima Hoque Essing, Senior Analyst, Management Consulting Research at ALM, highlights, “Deloitte effectively incorporates the risk agenda into executive level decision making by providing tangible and actionable advice on how to respond and prepare for different risk types from adopting proper stewardship around controllable internal risk to creating value from evolving technology, socioeconomic and geopolitical megatrends.”

Amidst an ever-changing environment with growing uncertainties, it is critical for organisations to view risk as a strategic driver to create resilient and market-leading businesses, while safeguarding reputation,” said Sam Balaji, Deloitte Global Financial Advisory & Risk Advisory Business Leader. “We are honoured to be recognised for Deloitte’s steadfast commitment to helping clients cultivate a closer alignment between risk and value creation.”

The report lays out the opportunities and challenges for Strategic Risk consulting providers focussing on market trends, client spending trends and forecasts, and the provider landscape, and includes selected companies.

According to ALM, strategic risk consulting is defined as services that “identify and manage risks that could prevent the fulfillment of a company’s value proposition.”

“The pace of change and digital disruption is happening more quickly than ever and traditional approaches to risk management are no longer sufficient. Organisations must adapt to this continuously-changing and increasing set of uncertainties as they strive to create value and enhance their reputation,” added Sandra Heuts, Deloitte Global Strategic & Reputation Risk Leader. “Deloitte takes advantage of digital innovations such as risk sensing to help clients navigate their challenges. Deloitte’s overall goal is to help clients elevate risk management to a strategic conversation in order to have a more proactive understanding of opportunities and risks, build resiliency and confidence, and improve performance.”
