Sentiment Index Survey

01 February 2023

The monthly survey, carried out by CFA Society Italy in collaboration with Il Sole 24 Ore Radiocor, was attended by 39 members of CFA Society Italy, between 19 and 31 January 2023. 

In terms of expectations for the next six months, 15.4% of  the interviewees expect an improvement in macroeconomic conditions (-2.3% compared to last month), 25.6% estimate unchanged conditions (+10.9% compared to the survey published at the beginning of January) and 59% expect a worsening (-8.7% compared to last month). The difference between those who are optimistic about the prospects of the Italian economy, compared to the pessimists is equal to -43.6, a value that represents the "CFA Society Italy - Radiocor Sentiment Index" for the month of February 2023. The figure rises by around 6 points compared to the previous survey, still negative but far from the absolute lows of August 2022 (-74 points).
