About the Deloitte CFO Survey

This is the 28th quarterly survey of chief financial officers and group finance directors of major companies in the UK.

The Q2 2014 survey took place between 6th and 23rd June.

112 CFOs participated, including the CFOs of 31 FTSE 100 and 37 FTSE 250 companies. The rest were CFOs of other UK-listed companies, large private companies and UK subsidiaries of major companies listed overseas. The combined market value of the 68 UK-listed companies surveyed is £473 billion, or approximately 21% of the UK quoted equity market.

The Deloitte CFO Survey is the only survey of major corporate users of capital that gauges attitudes to valuations, risk and financing.

Data from the CFO Survey can also be found on Datastream, Bloomberg, Factset and Macrobond.
