Publication Date: October 30, 2017

The Center for Audit Quality conducts an annual survey of U.S. retail investors, which measures confidence in U.S. capital markets, global capital markets, public companies and audited financial statements. The 2017 survey reveals that 85% of investors have confidence in investing in the U.S. capital markets, and that 63% of investors feel confident in corporate boards of directors. This year's survey also illustrates that investors are watching developments in Washington, D.C. closely and are concerned with the risks to the economy posed by the national debt, cyber-attacks on financial information and the capital markets, and global political unrest.
