CFO Insights — Special Edition: CFO Signals — 1Q14 survey

Published on: Mar 27, 2014

This quarter looks and feels a lot like the last. CFOs are again optimistic, but their near-term growth expectations are again weak. And there continue to be rising signs of conservatism and tentativeness.

CFO worries and still-muted growth expectations suggest these executives question the durability of global economic growth. And the rising tentativeness in their companies’ strategies and investment plans may turn out to be an indicator that the “just around the corner” acceleration we have been waiting for may still be further off than most would like.
