 CFA Institute: Global Market Sentiment Survery

Results of the 2014 CFA Institute Global Market Sentiment Survey (GMSS) are now available. We invite you to view and share the complete report, video, and results on our website.

More than 6,500 CFA Institute charterholders and members participated in the 2014 survey, providing an outlook on key market and industry issues. A few highlights are as follows:

  • Sixty-three percent of members expect the global economy to expand, up from 40 percent from last year. Members in the United Kingdom are the most optimistic about the global economy (78 percent expect expansion), whereas members in China are the most cautious (only 48 percent expect expansion in the coming year).
     
  • Seventy-one percent of members identified equities as the asset class most likely to perform best, a big jump up from 50 percent in 2013. According to the survey results, the U.S. and China are considered the best investment opportunity, with Brazil dropping lower on the list.
     
  • Sixty-eight percent of members worldwide say they are concerned that the prospect of central banks ending quantitative easing will have a negative impact on their local market in 2014.
     
  • Over half of members (54 percent) point to a lack of ethical cultures within financial firms as the factor that has contributed the most to the current lack of industry trust. Market fraud (24 percent), the honesty/integrity of financial reporting (21 percent) and the disclosure/use of financial derivatives (20 percent), and are viewed as the most serious issues facing global markets in 2014.
