About the survey

The Global Capital Confidence Barometer gauges corporate confidence in the economic outlook and identifies boardroom trends and practices in the way companies manage their Capital Agendas — EY's framework for strategically managing capital. It is a regular survey of senior executives from large companies around the world, conducted by Euromoney Institutional Investor Thought Leadership (EIITL). Our panel comprises select global EY clients and contacts and regular EIITL contributors.

  • In March and April, we surveyed a panel of more than 2,300 executives in 43 countries; 58% were CEOs, CFOs and other C-level executives.
  • Respondents represented 14 sectors, including financial services, consumer products and retail, technology, life sciences, automotive and transportation, oil and gas, power and utilities, mining and metals, diversified industrial products, and construction and real estate.
  • Surveyed companies’ annual global revenues were as follows: less than US$500m (21%); US$500m–US$999.9m (23%); US$1b–US$2.9b (17%); US$3b–US$4.9b (10%); and greater than US$5b (29%).
  • Global company ownership was as follows: publicly listed (62%), privately owned (32%), family-owned (3%) and government-/state-owned (3%).
