Despite a subdued outlook by Australian mid-market companies, most remain cautiously optimistic about the next six months. Mining has remained strong and the Retail sector has seen an impressive turnaround over the past six months.
To assist Australian businesses understand more on what lies ahead, we’re pleased to launch the third Commonwealth Bank Future Business Index.
In this study we survey businesses operating in mid-market corporate Australia. The Index examines a range of important issues that will affect the operations of companies over the next six months. Through the Index, we aim to gauge the level of confidence in business conditions, the challenges and threats facing businesses, expected source of growth and opportunities, and importantly, how prepared businesses are to navigate volatile conditions, including their use of financial facilities and risk planning.
These findings are then combined with analysis from our own economics team, to bring a better understanding of what the next six months may look like for your business. By taking the time to understand how potential future issues can affect them, businesses can be in a position to benefit from prospects and remain strong in uncertain times.
