KBRA Releases Research ? Uncertainty Reflected in Corporate Surveys

KBRA UK (KBRA) releases a report that explores the expectations and confidence among European corporate managers in the current economic environment. Challenges to corporate managers including the rapid rise in inflation, supply issues, and increased interest rates have created a great deal of uncertainty, as reflected in recent surveys. It is unsurprising that this perspective exists given the dramatic changes over the past three years. European corporate managers have faced the impacts of the COVID pandemic, supply chain shortages, the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and a rapid rise in energy prices. Managers currently face high interest rates and falling but still historically high inflation.
