Study: Investors Have Increased Confidence in US Markets

A new study by the Center for Audit Quality shows that almost two-thirds of individual investors (65%) have at least some confidence in U.S. capital markets, an increase of 4% from 2011. Other investor findings in the survey include:

  • 70% of investors believe that the American economy will either stay the same or improve over the next year; only 20% believe it will get worse.
  • Investors identified independent auditors, financial advisors and brokers, and audit committees as most effective in looking out for investors’ interests.
  • Confidence in capital markets outside the United States fell to a low of 35% (from 43% in 2011).
