2014 Q1 Belgian CFO survey
More appetite for risk
This edition of the Deloitte CFO survey reports a significant positive increase of two of its key indicators: risk appetite and performance to budget.
More CFOs believe it is a good time to take additional risk onto the balance sheet as has been the case in the past three years. More CFOs report that their businesses are financially performing at least as planned as has been the case in the past 2,5 years. As competitiveness has replaced the economic recovery as the number one concern, corporates seek to strike the right balance between defensive and expansionary strategies. Labour market and taxation policies are not contributing to the long term success of businesses in Belgium.
