Eurozone Crisis: Risk, Value, Opportunities
Perspective of C-Suite in North America, Asia & Middle East
The crisis in the Eurozone continues to dominate headlines around the world, with its implications reaching far beyond Europe’s borders. While it has proven to be a challenging operating environment for many governments and companies, unique opportunities are emerging that investors both in Europe and abroad will be able to exploit.
In this study, we draw on the experience of FTI Consulting as a trusted advisor to many of the world’s leading companies, banks and investors, as well as our intimate knowledge of the European business environment to discuss some of the issues that corporations, large and small, should be considering to successfully negotiate their way through a hostile and ever-changing landscape.
The Eurozone research was conducted online by the Strategy and Research Team at FTI Consulting from 9 to 16 January 2012 involving more than 800 C-suite executives in strategic decision-making for their organisations. Respondents were drawn from affiliate panel databases. The three regions and countries within were selected based upon the amount of trade they presently conduct with countries in the EU and prospects for increased prominence. The total number of respondents from each of the three key regions were 221 in North America, 351 in Asia and 236 in the Middle East. A breakdown of responses by each country involved is possible where the total number of respondents exceeds 50.
