Risks Confronting Boards: Uncertainty is the New Norm
At a recent National Association of Corporate Directors roundtable sponsored by EisnerAmper, attendees discussed the implications of the 2016 election results, pending regulations, and changing geopolitical and demographic landscapes. Many varying concerns and issues were raised; however, one trend became evident – now, more than ever, boards must be prepared for anything.
EisnerAmper Partner Steven Kreit and Chief Risk Officer Peter Bible discussed options for a board’s focus in the near- term. The group also brainstormed strategies for long-term issues and risks that need to be addressed. As this ominous funnel depicts, uncertainty is the new norm in American boardrooms.
