This report summarises the key results from our latest Fraser of Allander (FAI) Scottish Business Monitor, published in partnership with Addleshaw Goddard. The survey sampled over 400 firms in December and January from across the Scottish economy. The survey examined business sentiment in the fourth quarter of 2021 and the outlook and expectations through the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022. Our survey results show that business sentiment remained positive in the fourth quarter of 2021, with all core indicators except export activity remaining optimistic for the entirety of 2021.
