Q3 2012 Global CFO Signals
One of the major uncertainties facing CFOs globally – the outcome of the presidential election in the United States – may have been resolved. But that was not the case when CFOs were filling out their third-quarter CFO surveys. And given the number of other risks companies face as 2012 heads to a close, it may have not made a dent in their outlooks.
Deloitte’s Global CFO Signals provides highlights of recent CFO survey results from Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited member firms. In this issue of Global CFO Signals, which features surveys from 14 geographies, there are a few countries, including Ireland and The Netherlands, reporting solid CFO optimism about their own companies’ prospects; others are directionally challenged. But the watchword seems to remain “caution” in many parts of the world.
