Sentiment Index Survey

07 March 2023

The March 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 20 and 28 February 2023. 

In terms of expectations for the next six months, 16% of  the interviewees expect an improvement in macroeconomic conditions (a substantially stable figure compared to last month), 20% estimate unchanged conditions (-5.6% compared to the previous survey) and 64% expect worsening conditions (+5% compared to last month). The difference between those who are optimistic about the prospects of the Italian economy and the pessimists is equal to -48, a value that represents the "CFA Society Italy - Radiocor Sentiment Index" for the month of March 2023. The figure decreases by 4 points compared to the previous survey, still negative but far from the absolute lows of last summmer.
