RSM UK on Tuesday launched the Middle Market Business Index (MMBI), the first of its kind index to focus solely on middle market businesses in the UK. The index follows the development of a similar reading — the RSM US Middle Market Business Index — in the United States, which has been active for more than five years, and demonstrates RSM’s increasingly global understanding of middle market business trends.
Both MMBI indices are developed in partnership with leading data specialists at Moody’s Analytics and The Harris Poll, and provide unique insights into the health of the middle market.
The first-quarter UK MMBI findings demonstrate a fall from 139.6 in Q4 to 134.9 as Omicron hit business optimism early this year. However, middle market businesses still remained optimistic. The data shows that inflation and labor shortages began to ease at the start of the year.
