Inbound Investment Survey - November 2017
CFO confidence levels in 2017 are similar to those in 2014, but concerns about the future have arisen.
According to the April 2018 survey, more than 30 percent of inbound chief financial officers (CFOs) now believe the "U.S. business climate for foreign-based companies" is "getting worse." While more continue to express pessimism than optimism, the number of companies indicating that the business climate is getting better has jumped to 21 percent.
Nearly 70 percent of CFOs say that U.S. tax reform will have a positive impact on their company in the next 1-3 years.
While only 33 percent of CFOs expect their "U.S. employment level" to increase in the next six months, the majority indicate that they will remain the same.
