The survey covers 1,300 CEOs in 11 key markets and 11 key industry sectors: asset management, automotive, banking, consumer and retail, energy, infrastructure, insurance, life sciences, manufacturing, technology and telecoms.
The key findings of the survey are:
— Repositioning their business to meet the needs of Millennials is a priority for 38 percent.
— Geopolitics hits the boardroom, with territorialism named as top threat to growth.
— Half say becoming a victim of a cyber attack is inevitable.
“CEOs are harnessing the headwinds of change to steer their organizations to growth,” said Bill Thomas, Chairman, KPMG International. “CEOs I’m talking with recognize that geopolitical uncertainty, disruption and cyber threats are their new normal. The best are looking for the opportunities this creates, changing their systems, and in some cases their entire business. It’s clear that driving growth in 2018 and beyond will require CEOs to combine resourcefulness and realism in equal measure.”
