IACPM survey: Credit-default outlook worst since June 2009

IACPM Weekly SmartBrief | Apr 19, 2016

Debt investors are taking a dim view of the credit-default prognosis during the next 12 months, according to a survey by the International Association of Credit Portfolio Managers. The survey shows that investors are wary about nearly every market sector -- including consumer and retail mortgage debt -- and every global area. “Clearly, there’s no shortage of problems,” said Som-lok Leung, IACPM executive director. "US interest rates could rise in the near future, energy prices are better but still low, Asia remains murky, and Europe is contending with Brexit [the possibility of the UK exiting the European Union]."
