Investment professionals worldwide report greater optimism over economic prospects for the coming year, but do not express confidence that the integrity of capital markets is improving, according to the CFA Institute 2014 Global Market Sentiment Survey (GMSS).

Investment professionals worldwide report greater optimism over economic prospects for the coming year, but do not express confidence that the integrity of capital markets is improving, according to the CFA Institute 2014 Global Market Sentiment Survey (GMSS).

63% of the respondents think that the global economy will expand in 2014, a significant shift from the previous two years.

“The number of members who expect the global economy to expand has nearly doubled in the last two years, however this is no time for those in finance to become complacent,” said John Rogers, CFA, president and CEO of CFA Institute.

“The survey reflects that investor trust has been eroded and in order for the financial industry to be an extraordinary force for good, we must embrace ethical behavior at all levels. As markets rebound, we are working to ensure that attention does not shift away from meaningful reforms that might restore investor trust”.
