According to the report, "In the consulting marketplace, the leading firms are rapidly repositioning and evolving their delivery models in response to their clients' increased sophistication and the complexities of a global economy. There is also a clear awareness among providers that genuine differentiation counts in the competitive landscape for risk management (RM) consulting."

"We are very pleased to be rated within the highest possible category again this year, especially as the report's evaluation uses feedback from clients as well as Gartner's market insight," said Dennis Chesley, Global Leader of Risk Consulting at PwC. "Our highly-skilled people are dedicated to helping clients create formal and effective governance, risk, and compliance programs in line with their business strategies and their risk appetite."

Gartner's MarketScope compares a range of firms and its assessment is designed to evaluate the characteristics and capabilities of each firm.

"Managing risk has long been at the core of how PwC helps clients become more resilient, so it's great to be recognized as Strong Positive," continued PwC's Chesley.  "We work hard to stay on top of market shifts so that we can bring the big, changing risk picture to clients in innovative, quality solutions that are meaningful in their local context, and practical to implement."
