The Director Confidence Index - March 2021

U.S. Corporate Directors’ Optimism Jumps In March

Diligent Institute, in partnership with Corporate Board Member, has released the most recent Director Confidence Index (DCI), a US national pulse survey tracking director sentiment on the economy and other topical matters. Click below to read the full results. 

The future of global business looks increasingly bright thanks to a goldilocks mixture of cheap credit, growing consumer demand and the accelerating rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine—at least among Americans. That appears to be the growing consensus among U.S. corporate directors, who notched their highest rating for the future of the economy in our latest poll. 

Our March Director Confidence Index survey, conducted in partnership between Corporate Board Member and Diligent Institute, shows growing optimism for business conditions 12 months from now. Government spending, availability of capital and forecasts of herd immunity by this time next year are a few reasons driving the optimism of the 117 U.S. public company boarmembers polled March 21-24.
