Leading Point can identify these inefficiencies and make practical recommendations to enhance the revenue earning capacity and overall contribution the property makes to the business.

Making smarter risk decisions

Globalization and connectivity have ensured that risk is no longer confined to one company, country or continent. The sub-prime mortgage crisis is just one instance of how risk can spread. The regulatory burden is also growing as new laws are introduced and older laws—like the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act—are more rigorously enforced throughout the world.

But some of the risk management systems that have been put in place have actually made companies more vulnerable; they have been designed to address what went wrong yesterday, not what might go wrong tomorrow. Many companies have also adopted a piecemeal approach to risk management.
