About this talk

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered an economic crisis across the world, threatening lives, livelihoods, businesses, and even entire industries. This crisis has exposed shortcomings in preparedness. Organizations have struggled to respond to the economic, environmental, societal, and technological challenges, or to anticipate emerging risks. The World Economic Forum's COVID-19 Risks Outlook seeks to provide a preliminary picture of which familiar risks may be amplified by the crisis, and which new ones may emerge. It taps into the views of nearly 350 senior risk professionals who participated in the COVID-19 Risks Perception Survey. They were asked to take a view on 31 risks across three dimensions: most likely for the world, most concerning for the world, and most worrisome for companies. Marsh & McLennan and Zurich Insurance Group, regular contributors to the WEF Global Risks Report, are proud partners in producing this report. Marsh and Zurich Insurance in Asia are pleased to discuss some of the report's key findings and risk implications with business leaders and risk managers across the region at this webcast.
