Chief financial officers (CFOs) stand at the crux of strategy and profits. As the second-most powerful – and arguably the best informed – executives at many organizations, their opinions provide rich insights into the mood of the economy. Financial Executives International and Baruch College publish a quarterly survey of CFOs that monitors trends in corporate finance. getAbstract recommends their August 2013 installment which, though statistics-heavy, offers a digestible breakdown of CFOs’ attitudes and current market sentiment.
In this summary, you will learn
- How US chief financial officers perceive the current economic climate,
- What expectations they have for the coming year and
- How they are spending.
