Global Economy

Global Economy


“The past weeks volatility on global stock exchanges is causing significant concerns that a prolonged depressed global economy will further impact emerging economies. This is driven by the slow-down in the Chinese economy and recent disappointing market indicators from the US. Whilst a decline in the Rand means a boost for SA stocks, a view has also been expressed that South Africa may be facing a perfect economic storm and is in for a bumpy ride.


As risk managers we often consider the impact of external risks, in particular macro-economic and geo-political risks, but given the prolonged global economic pressure have you assessed the potential impacts of global market factors on performance and the potential risk scenarios that may materialise?


Do you leverage scenario analysis as a risk tool to understand the potential impacts on your organisation?


Considering the most likely scenarios and the impact on profitability, competitor behavior and cash flow will go a long way to assist management in making proactive decisions to manage this risk.”
