Accountants Deloitte CFO survey result for March

  • British company finance chiefs are their most optimistic in 18 months
  • 31% of CFOs surveyed last month said they were more optimistic about the prospects for their company than three months earlier, up from 27 percent in December and just 3 percent immediately after the June 2016 referendum
  • Risk appetite is far from having recovered, though: 26% said they still expected to reduce capital spending because of Brexit and 30 percent plan to slow hiring - though this is down from an outright majority who planned to cut investment and jobs just after the referendum
