Center for Audit Quality Survey Finds Majority of Nation’s Investors Support Sarbanes Oxley Act

Center for Audit Quality Survey Finds Majority of Nation’s Investors Support Sarbanes Oxley Act

by Toby Lucich on November 28, 2007

In a telephone survey conducted July 17-23, 2007, the Glover Park Group asked a series of
questions related to investing, the capital markets and Sarbanes-Oxley. A summary of the
findings representing 1,001 investors nationally are included below.

With a sample of this size, one can say with 95% certainty that the results have a sampling
error of +/- 3 percentage points of what they would be if the entire population of investors had
been polled with complete accuracy.

Confidence in capital markets:
• A large majority (84%) of investors express confidence in the US capital markets, with 39%
saying they have quite a bit or a great deal of confidence. (Q6)
• In contrast, 65% of investors have confidence in the capital markets outside of the US, with
only 22% indicating quite a bit or a great deal of confidence in those markets. (Q7)

Review the entire survey at CAQ.
