Central Europe CFO Survey 2018
Benchmarking Corporate Financial Attitudes in 2018
Over the past 8 years Deloitte has conducted several studies that track the latest thinking and actions of CFOs that represent the largest and most influential companies in Central Europe. The goal for this year’s survey is to capture the shifts in CFOs’ opinions on topics including risk, GDP growth, financing priorities and the most recent issues facing business as digital transformation of finance function.
Message from the Program Leader
Essentially, last year’s report gave us an overall picture of positive expectations in a testing environment. On the one hand, the CFO Confidence Index, which we included for the second time, showed a significant 29-point rise in economic confidence over last year. On the other, there were some real worries about the quality of the business environment in which companies had to operate last year. However, a clear majority of CFOs had real confidence in their own abilities and in their companies’ business model and strategy. It will be very interesting to see how CFOs expectations are reflected by the events across our region of the next 12 months.
