Fitch Ratings’ latest quarterly survey of fixed-income investors shows that 70 per cent of respondents consider a housing market downturn to be the biggest risk to Australia’s credit market. This compares with just 29 per cent a year ago. The survey also shows that nearly all respondents anticipate a further decline in house prices, compared with 52 per cent a year ago. Meanwhile, 60 per cent of respondents expect official interest rates to be cut by up to 50 basis points over the next 12 months.
