CFO Insights: Q3 2019 Global CFO Signals™ – The shadow of uncertainty grows longer

Published on: Dec 18, 2019

Uncertainty is taking a toll on CFO optimism in the 20 surveys reporting in this edition of Global CFO Signals.

For CFOs, uncertainty is a constant companion. At times, though, there can be a little too much togetherness. This seems to be one such period. Despite the continued strength of the US economy and equity markets, CFOs are still facing unknowns that stretch from the resolution of the Brexit negotiations to the US-China trade war to shifting monetary policy. Add in uncertainty about the Chinese economy and renewed concerns about stability in the Middle East, and it is safe to say that few CFOs have a clear line of sight into 2020 and beyond.
