Diversity of perspectives was deemed important, with 92% of insurance professionals recognising it was an essential component of risk management decision-making.
Universities need to modify their syllabuses considerably to be equipped to manage future risk management challenges and new skills will be required to succeed in the insurance business by 2025, according to 92% in the report.

Other key findings from the report include:

Only 16% agreed that there will be a sufficient number of risk management graduates to meet 2025 demands

The professionals surveyed also expect technology to have a big impact, with 78% of the respondents predicting that IT and supply chain will incorporate risk goals in five years.

The risks impacting our organisations and the profession have undergone a major transformation over the past five years,” said Gloria Brosius, president at RIMS.

“This collaborative report offers great insight as to where we are today and where we need to be tomorrow. Through education, training and by embracing diverse perspectives we can ultimately create a talented risk management pipeline that’s primed to drive organisational success into the future.”
