CEO Confidence Remains High in 1Q15 – Vistage CEO Confidence Index

Confidence among CEOs has remained higher for a longer period

than at any other time in the past ten years, according to a survey of

1,541 small- to mid-sized business owners. The survey, which took

place from March 9 to March 18, 2015, provides a clear snapshot of

current economic, market and industry trends.


The Vistage Confidence Index was 105.8 in the 1st quarter of 2015,

between the 107.5 in the 4th quarter and 101.3 in the 1st quarter of

2014. The recent survey represented the eighth consecutive year-to-year

increase, a new record for the persistence of optimism. The small

1st quarter loss involved all components, although none registered a

significant decline. The stability in CEOs’ confidence stands in sharp

contrast to the slowdown in the pace of economic growth at yearend,

which has persisted into the 1st quarter of 2015. Confidence

in the underlying strength of the economy has been maintained

undiminished despite a number of factors: a harsh winter, a tightening

labor market, rising wage pressures, weakening export demand, and

a pending shift in Fed policy. To be sure, some of these trends reflect

the growing strength of the U.S. economy. Overall, firms anticipate

that the economy will continue to make substantial progress, with

a resurgence in growth as the year progresses.

3q2014 Vistage CEO confidence index infographic

Confidence among CEOs reached its highest level in two years,

finally achieving a lift-off from its favorable holding pattern in the

last three quarters. The Vistage CEO Confidence Index was 103.4 in

the 3rd quarter 2014 survey, up from 101.0 in the 2nd quarter and

97.8 in last year’s 3rd quarter, and the highest level since 105.1 was

recorded in the 1st quarter of 2012. There is no greater indication

of confidence in future prospects than a firm’s willingness to

increase their fixed investment spending and to expand their

workforce. On both counts, firms reported the most expansive

plans since 2006.
