Nearly 75 percent of CFOs are at least moderately concerned about the risks they might face in the next 12 months, according to a national survey released today by Euler Hermes Americas. The Euler Hermes ‘Risky Business’ Survey analyzed responses from US CFOs and those in related jobs in companies with at least $5 million of annual revenues to understand their top concerns related to global political, economic and digital uncertainties.

The Risky Business survey analyzed responses from 250 US CFOs and their direct reports. Quotas were established to ensure that half of the respondents were from small companies (revenues between $5M and $25M) and that the remainder were medium sized (with revenues of $25M or more). Survey responses were collected during the period of September 10 – October 4, 2018.
