Retail & Consumer Goods

Retailers have always had to evolve to survive and the retail sector has shown resilience in the face of the economic crisis. However, tough competition in all sub-sectors, corporate social responsibility and environmental demands, the continuing pressure of new regulation, technological advancements and international political instability make the sector challenging to navigate. Future survival will depend on retailers managing risks that could significantly impact brand reputation while simultaneously leveraging their customer relationships.
