CFO Insights — Special Edition: Results from 2017 Q2 "CFO Signals" survey

Published on: Jun 22, 2017

When CFOs responded to last quarter’s survey, the new US Administration had just taken over and had issued several executive orders supporting key campaign promises. Meanwhile, the new Congress had begun to set its legislative agenda, and the global economy had shown continued signs of strength.

This post-election period appeared to have left CFOs very optimistic – with the 1Q17 survey registering the sharpest uptick in sentiment in its seven-year history, and with several key growth metrics showing considerable strength.

Since then, there have been starts, stops, and redirections in some key policy areas, and there have been preliminary movements on income taxes, trade, and foreign policy. Still, these developments do not appear to have substantially dampened CFOs’ outlooks for the next year.
