Attention members: Now is your chance to participate in an important IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) and ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) research survey for a chance to win one of three $100 Amazon gift cards.

The new IMA/ACCA Global Economic Conditions (GEC) Survey is now open and we are keen to hear your views as part of informing a realistic ‘on-the-ground’ appraisal of the current situation. We greatly appreciate your involvement and thank you in advance for taking part.

As mentioned in the 2017 second quarter GECS report, global economic confidence fell slightly, but confidence remained high compared with the past couple of years. Was that fall an early indicator of the direction of travel, or will Q3 witness a rebound in confidence?

We invite you to share your views on the third quarter to understand how ongoing considerations from interest rates and levels of credit to global security concerns affect you and your organization.

The questionnaire will be open until September 15 and your views will be treated as confidential. Please click the following link to participate in the survey:

The latest report from the last quarter, with detailed context analysis and commentary from leading economists can be accessed here.

Also, as part of ongoing analysis we continue to assess the impact of Brexit. Your views provide an important global indicator in this regard so if you could spare a few moments to answer the optional questions on Brexit, that would be greatly appreciated.

If you wish to make any other comments about global economic conditions, please email:
