The CFO Survey Q2 2014

Momentum hits a speed bump

CFO Survey Q2 2014 | Deloitte

(Click image to view infographic as a PDF)

The upward trend in optimism has slowed significantly in the latest CFO Survey. The results highlight that the uncertainty around Federal Government policy, the recent uptick in the value of the Australian dollar, as well as the continuing concerns over the multi-speed economy have conspired to take the edge of the previous quarter’s positive momentum, resulting in a decline in business confidence.

Interestingly, although this quarter’s results show optimism has hit a speed bump, CFOs views on underlying business metrics for the coming year remain strong as they continue to expect growth for their businesses.

When asked about the impact of the recent Federal Budget announcements, the views of Australian CFOs seem to suggest that the tough messages delivered through the Budget are challenging for the wider Australian economy, but that the fiscal repair being undertaken by the government is necessary.
