The Deloitte CFO Survey: 2015 Q1

Election casts a long shadow over corporates

April 2015

The CFO Survey is firmly established with media and policy makers as an authoritative barometer of UK corporates’ sentiment and strategies. It is the only survey of major UK corporate users of capital that gauges attitudes to valuations, risk and financing.

Key findings

  • CFOs rate post-election policy change and uncertainty as greatest threat to UK business, with EU referendum in second
  • CFOs fear post-election changes to tax, financial regulation, and labour market policy will have negative effects on business
  • Political uncertainty weighing on investment plans
