CFO Insights — Special Edition: CFO Signals 2016 Q1 Survey Results

Published on: Mar 31, 2016

Last quarter’s survey saw CFOs voice concerns about geopolitical risks, about slowing growth in developed and developing economies, and about a possible global overreliance on the U.S. economy.

That undercurrent of fear combined with a very rocky start to 2016 — for both global economic performance and equity market valuations — has clearly shaken CFOs’ outlooks.

Their performance expectations have fallen sharply to levels at or near new survey lows, and their confidence in their companies’ longer-term prospects is on the verge of turning net-negative for the first time in more than three years.
