Advanced Enterprise Management Analytics

It's no secret that we live in an age of extraordinary change. But to stay ahead of the geopolitical, political, and macroeconomic forces constantly reshaping the business environment, companies need more than the ability to extract signals from the noise—they must move from analysis to action. We support clients with unique insights on trends, risks, and opportunities. Our global reach and depth across industries uniquely positions us to connect our unparalleled expertise and tools with external expert networks.

Crucially, we help clients take decisive action by linking these insights directly to the strategic agenda of senior management. We then help them embed the capacity to withstand and exploit geostrategic forces within their core business processes. We help clients identify the trends and discontinuities that will affect their businesses in the immediate future and over the long term. We systematically identify the varying scope of trends operating in the spheres of corporate finance, policy and governance, demographics, technology, business economics, and the environment.

Retroactive Forecasting Methodologies

Companies should choose consciously what types and levels of risk to take and what to avoid and mitigate (“risk ownership”). We help clients gauge their unique strategic, financial, and operational circumstances (“risk bearing capacity”) in order to ensure that their risk choices are aligned with their strategy and with their financial and operational risk-taking capabilities (“risk strategy and risk appetite”), so that they can optimize the risk-return trade-off. We also, help clients define overall governance as well as the organization of the relevant risk, finance, and other control functions, and determine how they should interact with one another and other parts of the organization. Furthermore, we provide granular benchmarks on the appropriate size of and cost for different risk and control units.

We help our clients identify, quantify, and prioritize their most important risks as well as related returns. We do this using a combination of advanced quantification methods (such as analytic modeling and stress testing, also using nontraditional data sources) and the systematic integration of qualitative factors, including business-management judgment. To complement statistically validated approaches, we integrate forward thinking, especially in risk measurement and management reporting.

In close cooperation with our Dispute Resolution and Litigation Practice, we advise our clients on appropriate risk management solutions. As a result, our clients gain a clearer perspective of their most important risks and the related returns, as well as on the structure of their portfolio of risks and how they can use insights in order to improve strategic, financial, and operational decision making (for example, on risk mitigation, portfolio adjustments, contracting or risk based strategy).

Risk-Enabled Decisions Analyses

Everyone in an organization has some responsibility in managing risk across the organization, not just the chief risk officer. Shareholders, rating agencies, and regulators and policy makers request that companies involve their top management and even their boards. However, the right structural and organizational choices, the description of roles and responsibilities, as well as the appropriate definitions of organizational units and reporting lines, are critical to ensuring robust and effective enterprise-risk management.

Top-notch technical capabilities are necessary but not sufficient. Organizations need to deliver value to their customers and create sustainable sources of competitive advantage. Key to the value we bring is our deep understanding of our clients, the industries in which they operate, and how to make change happen—we help our clients turn the promise of risk advanced analytics into impact. Our ability to combine deep capabilities in risk advanced analytics with expertise in strategy and organizational transformation makes our approach unique and powerful. We know that merely solving the problem at hand isn't enough, and so we work closely with key employees at all levels to build their core capabilities and refine processes.
