In this week’s podcast we talk to Ian Stewart, Chief Economist of Deloitte, about the recent survey of CFOs they have completed. How are Finance Directors feeling about the UK economy and their prospects for the year to come? Are they benefitting from the easing which the Bank of England provided in August of last year? To what extent is the threat of Brexit weighing on the investment and hiring decisions of management? And what other major issues are there which might explain the subdued level of animal spirits exhibited by the country’s most influential Finance Directors.
