UK large firms: business risk assessed by chief financial officers 2017-2020

This statistic illustrates opinion on whether or not the time is right for corporations to be taking greater risks onto their balance sheets in the United Kingdom, expressed by chief financial officers (CFOs) over time from the first quarter of 2017 to the fourth quarter of 2020. The lowest support for taking greater financial risk was in the first quarter of 2020, with only three percent of respondents agreeing owing to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In the fourth quarter of 2020, 19 percent of respondents agreed that it is a good time to take greater risk onto their balance sheets - an improvement from the lows seen in early 2020.

Is this a good time to be taking greater risk onto your balance sheets?
