Investor remain unconvinced by recent policy efforts  and the majority (58%) of survey respondents think the while the Eurozone fiscal compact is positive  it will be marginal in solving the crisis.  Only 25% of investors participating in the survey regard it as an important policy innovation bringing crisis resolution closer and 17% view the recent policy efforts as  irrelevant.  The fiscal compact is an agreement, signed in March by all EU member states except Britain and the Czech Republic, that puts strict caps on government spending and borrowing in a bid to head off the sovereign debt crisis in the eurozone.
