Swiss CFOs are optimistic as they look ahead to 2018. Over the next 12 months, their expectations for the economy, their own company’s business, revenues, operating margins and investment are all positive. They are also, however, more concerned about currency risks and internal risks.

European CFO Survey results
- Findings from the Swiss CFO Survey broadly reflect those of the European Survey. Overall, CFOs in Europe are more optimistic than in Q1 2017 about the outlook for their own company, revenue, investment and employee numbers.
- Only expectations for operating margins are – very slightly – down.
- Perceived uncertainty in the economic and financial environment is lower across all the major economies except the UK, where responses are below-average for all indicators except the financing environment.
The eurozone recovery is more stable than many observers expected. Dr. Alexander Börsch, Chief Economist, Deloitte Germany

About the CFO Survey
The survey comprises 20 questions which recur each quarter and around 10 questions unique to the financial conditions of the previous quarter. This allows us to provide you with both specific feedback on the market conditions relevant to the previous quarter, as well as ongoing trend analysis regarding how financial conditions are evolving and how your peers are reacting to them.
The CFO Survey brings the views of CFOs to a wide audience in the media and among policy makers and is a valuable benchmark for Swiss business leaders.
