The first quarter's Deloitte CFO Survey, published on 16 April 2013, shows a sharp fall in uncertainty and rising optimism and risk appetite among UK corporates.
About the Deloitte CFO Survey
The Deloitte CFO Survey, launched in 2007, is a quarterly survey of Chief Financial Officers and Group Finance Directors of major UK companies. Over 300 CFOs, mainly from FTSE 350 companies, have joined the CFO Survey panel. The Survey captures shifts in UK CFOs' opinions on valuations, risks and financing and has become a benchmark for gauging financial attitudes of major corporate users of capital.
The Deloitte CFO Survey has been widely quoted in the media and is firmly established with policymakers. The Bank of England has cited the CFO Survey several times in its publications such as the quarterly Inflation Report and the monthly Trends in Lending report. The findings have also been quoted in the minutes of the Bank's Monetary Policy Committee meetings.
