Oxford Economics and SAP conducted a global telephone survey during March and April of 2017. We reached 1,500 financial executives in the US, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Russia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, South Africa, China, Japan, Australia, India, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
The survey covered the banking, retail, consumer products, utilities, publicsector, high-tech, insurance, manufacturing, and professional services industries, with 13% of responses in each of the first five. Nearly threequarters (73%) of the executives we reached were CFOs; the next-largest group by title was president/EVP/SVP/VP of finance, at 7%; and the remaining respondents represented a broad mix of senior roles, including controllers, heads of procurement, and CTO/CIO/CISOs.
We also conducted in-depth telephone interviews with CFOs and other experts in the finance function at firms around the world. Our interviewees are quoted directly throughout this report, and we are grateful for their insights.
