Foreword
kPmG International is pleased to present Turning Global Risk into Opportunity, a report based on our recent survey of 350 senior finance executives from consumer markets companies around the world. a series of in-depth interviews with select CFos was alsoconducted, to enhance the survey findings and fully explore the current state and future outlook for companies in the retail, food, drink, and consumer goods sectors. this is a time of considerable volatility and opportunity for these sectors. Globally, the 2008/09 financial crisis had a lasting affect on consumer behavior, and economic uncertainty, globalization, and new technology all continue todrive change in the way consumers spend. structural changes in the global economy are shifting economic weight from West to east and creating massive new markets for consumer goods and retail companies in emerging economies. at the same time, developed countries are growing slowly, if at all, while competition is increasing from both domestic and overseas players. to succeed in this highly dynamic,fluid environment, manufacturers and retailers must re-think their business models and be willing to adapt quickly to emerging risks and opportunities. they must strike the careful balance between global scale and local relevance, build strong relationships with stakeholders on the ground and be able to manage a wide variety of risks that can undermine their strategic aims. at kPmG, we areconstantly seeking to understand how the changing external environment is affecting the performance of food, drink and consumer goods manufacturers and retailers. our research, in which reports like this play an important role, helps us to gain valuable insight into the strategies and tactics that businesses are adopting to succeed in a complex and fast-changing world. this makes us better able to adviseour clients which, in turn, helps them to position themselves for sustainable, long-term growth. We would like to thank the executives who participated in this study and we hope the findings are useful as you address the challenges and opportunities you face. We at kPmG welcome the opportunity to discuss this study and its implications for your business in the years ahead.
