  • changes in the funded status of our global defined benefit pension plans and the impact of any increased pension funding resulting from those changes;
  • the impact of any regional, national or global political, economic, regulatory or market conditions on our results of operations and financial condition, including the European debt crisis and market perceptions concerning the stability of the Euro;
  • the impact of changes in interest rates and deterioration of counterparty credit quality on our results related to our cash balances and investment portfolios, including corporate and fiduciary funds;
  • the impact on our net income caused by fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates;
  • the impact on our net income or cash flows and our effective tax rate in a particular period caused by settled tax audits and expired statutes of limitation;
  • the extent to which we retain existing clients and attract new business, and our ability to incentivize and retain key employees;

  • the impact of competition, including with respect to our geographic reach, the sophistication and quality of our services, our pricing relative to competitors, our customers' option to self-insure or utilize internal resources instead of consultants, and our corporate tax rates relative to our competitors;
  • the potential impact of rating agency actions on our cost of financing and ability to borrow, as well as on our operating costs and competitive position;
  • our ability to successfully recover should we experience a disaster or other business continuity problem;
  • our ability to maintain adequate physical, technical and administrative safeguards to protect the security of our data;
  • changes in applicable tax or accounting requirements; and
