More than 60% of corporate risk managers are worried about protecting their domestic investments and assets, according to an Internet survey by The Chubb Corp. But fewer than half said they worry about international assets and investments, according to the survey. Also, when presented with a list of 22 risks ranging from property damage to interest rates, risk managers ranked financial risks much lower than other, more traditional risks.
Currency, credit and interest rate risks all scored less than five on a scale of one to 10, with 10 representing the most concern. By contrast, general/legal liability, property damage, professional liability and workers compensation each averaged seven or greater.
