The seventh annual American Express/CFO Research Global Business and Spending Monitor shows that, for the first time since 2010, senior finance executives around the world are coming closer together in their outlooks for the growing strength of their regional economies. CFOs in Europe are finally becoming more optimistic, while finance executives in other regions maintain their positive outlook. While most companies remain solidly behind a program of steady investment to balance growth and profitability, this year an increasing number of companies report they will commit to aggressive spending and investment in order to pursue growth. In this environment, CFOs will be expected to play an important role in spurring their companies forward.
