This member survey was created to seek input from CFA Institute members and gather feedback on market sentiment, performance, and market integrity issues in 2012.
The results of the Global Market Sentiment Survey will be used to offer regulators and the financial media commentary on how our members view the prospects for ethical practice and markets in 2012. The Global Market Sentiment Survey 2012 is an extension of the CFA Institute Financial Market Integrity Outlook Survey which has been conducted since 2007.
An online survey was conducted from 2-11 November 2011. 58,385 members globally were invited to participate in the survey; 2,726 responded, for an overall response rate of 4.67% and a margin of error of ±1.85%. Aggregate results were re-weighted to reflect the actual geographic distribution of CFA Institute members.
