Enterprise risk management may be all the rage, but a recent study by Deloitte & Touche LLP points up some holes in the way corporations manage their risks. Its assessment of companies that suffered big stock sell-offs over the last 10 years, and the events that triggered those losses, found that almost 80% of the 100 companies with the biggest losses had been hit by two or more risks that were interrelated.
