Economist Intelligence Unit Survey Results
“The Annual Global Fraud Survey, commissioned by Kroll and carried out by the Economist Intelligence Unit, polled 1,265 senior executives worldwide from a broad range of industries and functions in June and July 2011. Where Economist Intelligence Unit analysis has been quoted in this report, it has been headlined as such. Kroll also undertook its own analysis of the results. As in previous years, these represented a wide range of industries, including notable participation from Financial Services and Professional Services; as well as Retail and Wholesale; Technology, Media, and Telecommunications; Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals; Travel, Leisure, and Transportation; Consumer Goods; Construction, Engineering, and Infrastructure; Natural Resources and Manufacturing. Respondents were senior, with 47% at C-suite level. One-half of participants represent companies with annual revenues of over $500m. Respondents this year included 23% from North America, 24% from Europe, 28% from the Asia-Pacific region, 15% from the Middle East/Africa and 11% from Latin America.
This report brings together these survey results with the experience and expertise of Kroll and a selection of its affiliates.

Kroll would like to thank the Economist Intelligence Unit, Dr. Paul Kielstra and all the authors for their contributions in producing this report..”
