CNBC CFO Council Fed Matters — March 2022

CFO Council | Corporate Governance | Financial Technology and Innovation | Global Economy | Treasury, Congress and The Fed

On March 21st, Members of CNBC’s CFO Council heard from CNBC’s Steve Liesman with special guest Mark Zandy, of Moody’s Analytics, on the eve of the FOMC decision.

Key Points

  • While it may seem impossible for the Fed. to get it right based on survey results, good things are in fact coming for the U.S. economy. Despite a much higher chance of recession compared to previous results, with wages on the rise and lower unemployment rates, labor is certainly improving within the country.
  • It is imperative to pay attention to big tech companies in the next few months. As a result of drastic increases in oil prices, many companies will have to respond in ways that haven’t been done yet. These tech companies however will likely be the least affected by such inflation.

Key Points

  • According to a survey, 91% of respondents believe the fed. is late in addressing the issue of inflation. Respondents are still optimistic the economy will do well as long as it reaches a point where it is able to fight inflation.
  • America however will still have to deal with supply chain issues as well as the effects of the virus on supplies. There has also been a significant rise in consumer demands over the past months.

CNBC CFO Council Fed Matters — December 2021

CFO Council | Corporate Governance | Global Economy | Treasury, Congress and The Fed

CNBC’s CFO Council met on December 14th, 2021, for the last event of the year.

Key Points

  • In a recent development, surveys have found that hiring difficulties are a permanent concern. Aside from general difficulties in terms of hiring, the U.S. is now significantly behind in terms of women in the workforce as a result of childcare accessibility.
  • Compared to November’s survey, this survey predicted the fed to taper at 30 billion. The biggest concern however shifted to whether or not the fed was moving too high too fast.

CNBC CFO Council Fed Matters — November 2021

CFO Council | Corporate Governance | Global Economy | Treasury, Congress and The Fed

On November 2nd, Members of CNBC’s CFO Council heard from CNBC’s very own Steve Liesman ahead of the highly anticipated FOMC decision.

Key Points

  • As expected, inflation has remained the number one concern and risk to the economy. Labor shortage has also remained a pressing issue within the United States as a result of the immigration crisis. While we have yet to see any obvious solutions, inflation is certainly the more manageable issue of the two.
  • According to CNBC’s Fed. survey. Predictions have expected the fed to taper in November with an average monthly cost of 15 billion. Respondents forecasted a median hike for September 2022 while 44% believe it could be here as soon as July.
  • A one size fits all mindset is no longer realistic as becoming more flexible is crucial, especially for older generations in terms of understanding and taking full advantage of new technology.
