In the past years, the term polycrisis really found its way in our everyday lives. Inflation and macroeconomic volatility, geopolitical threats, cyberattacks: Europe’s societies and economies have faced a multitude of challenges, and there is no meaningful de-escalation on the economic, geopolitical or social front perceivable at the horizon.

Now, how do we move on from this? Listen to John Parkhouse, CEO and Senior Partner at PwC Luxembourg on how the results of PwC’s Global CEO survey, and more specifically, the Luxembourg cut, can help navigate these times of uncertainty and why business clearly has a role to play.

On the survey

For the past 26 years, PwC has surveyed chief executives for our Global CEO Survey. Since then, the survey has become a key tool to garner insights on the main challenges CEOs across the world face, the areas of strategic significance, the available opportunities for future growth, and ultimately, how the global economy will be shaped in the coming years.

At PwC Luxembourg, given the Grand Duchy’s position as a leading international financial centre in the heart of Europe, we partake in this exercise on a biennial basis to obtain insights from CEOs in both the financial and non-financial sectors and get an idea on how Luxembourg CEOs fare compared to their global peers, and where the country’s economy is heading.

This year, the response rate increased to 85, up from 82 in the previous edition of the survey. Notably, this year’s sample is even more heavily skewed towards respondents from the financial services sector (FS), who now make up over 80% of our sample. Globally, 4,410 CEOs from 105 countries and territories responded to the survey.
