RSM US Middle Market Leadership Council survey report

Survey shows middle market outperforming amid economic worries


Download the full report

Our research based on the RSM Middle Market Leadership Council (MMLC) survey of 700 U.S. executives shows the middle market continues to experience generally positive economic conditions with forward expectations of higher net earnings and gross revenues. Moreover, survey participants expect to increase capital expenditures during the next six months and increase hiring.

The major takeaway from the survey is that, for the middle market, talk of the U.S. economy falling into recession is premature at best and overblown at worst.

Download the full report for detailed survey findings, including our research into what the middle market thinks about special topical questions related to data security and privacy, incentive compensation, exit strategy and succession planning and commercial banking.
