52nd CBI/PricewaterhouseCoopers Financial Services Survey
Survey of financial outlook for financial services companies
CBI & PricewaterhouseCoopers
Oct 2002 United Kingdom Investment - General

This latest quarterly research shows a very slight decrease in overall business optimism, reflecting a picture of flat business volumes over the past three months. While falling stock market values have emphasised the increasingly close links between different elements of the financial services industry, clear distinctions  remain between the sectors. On the cost side, staff numbers increased slightly as some sectors sought to take advantage of market growth. Despite this, overall costs were successfully reduced across the industry. Reviewing investment intentions, it is expected that capital expenditure growth will be focused on the IT area, with the emphasis firmly on increasing speed and efficiency. Overall, uncertainty remains a key theme for the industry.
