Summary • Kroll’s third Annual Global Fraud Survey, commissioned by Kroll and conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit – surveyed over 700 people. • The incidence of fraud is almost identical to that found in last year’s survey, at 85% per cent of respondents, and the average loss per company has risen only slightly in the new survey, to $8.8 million from $8.2 million. • Those dangers which grow as companies expand – entry into new markets, staff turnover for example – have declined in importance. • The downturn, however, has heightened other risks. Pay stringency in the face of lower revenue, cost cuttings on controls, for example, has provided a motive for fraud. • Larger companies – those with over $5 billion in annual sales – reported greater average losses, up to $25.8 million from $23.3 million in 2008, the situation improved for smaller business – those with yearly revenue under $5 billion – dropped to $4.6 million from $5.5 million.
Europe, Middle East/Africa have seen increase in fraud; elsewhere, falling or static prevalence and loss
