PwC Global Investor Survey - 2016: Redefining business success in a changing world

Over 400 investment professionals gave us their views on the threats and opportunities facing the companies they follow and where they see areas for improvement in strategy and communication. This report is a companion to our 19th Annual Global CEO Survey, which included interviews with over 1,400 chief executive officers. The CEO Survey explores business leaders’ views on the challenges and opportunities facing their businesses, the expectations of stakeholders and the evolving purpose of a company.

In this ‘Investor view’, we investigate why.
