Good News: Investor Confidence Hits New Highs

This year's edition of the Center for Audit Quality's Main Street Investor Survey brings good news. Investor confidence is up.

Since 2007, the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) has commissioned an annual survey of U.S. investors as part of our efforts to enhance understanding of and confidence in capital markets. Each year, the Main Street Investor Survey measures retail investor confidence in U.S. capital markets, global capital markets, and audited financial information, as well as confidence in investing in publicly traded companies. The survey also asks about the current financial and economic landscape and its impact on investors.

Let's take a closer look at this year's findings. They bode well not just for investors, but for our entire economy, which relies on vibrant financial markets as an engine of capital formation and economic growth.

Investor Confidence Shows Strength

This year, confidence in investing in U.S. public companies reached an all-time high of 80%. Additionally, 73% of investors indicate they have some, quite a bit, or a great deal of confidence in U.S. capital markets, an increase of four percentage points from 2013 and the highest level since 2009.
