We're excited to publish our 2019 KPMG New Zealand CEO Outlook report. Our report is compiled in conjunction with insights from the Global KPMG CEO Outlook report that interviews over 1,300 CEOs worldwide. We hone in on the responses of 50 leading New Zealand CEOs.

New Zealand CEOs confident but cautious approach to growth

In an increasingly turbulent world, it’s more important than ever for New Zealand businesses to look to the future and challenge ourselves to grow. 

Our survey shows some heartening results. New Zealand CEOs are confident in the growth prospects for their organisation (almost 90% of CEOs) and industry and country (78% of CEOs). However,  the majority of New Zealand CEOs expect revenue growth of less than 2% over the next three years.

Part of our DNA is about being New Zealanders and having a strong sense of place and responsibility, where aspirations for our firm, our clients, and our country are intertwined. A growth mind-set is essential - without it we don't create opportunities, embrace change and contribute to New Zealand's prosperity.
