Fears Rise That U.K. House Prices Will Fall

Only a quarter of respondents said the same a year ago. Respondents include hedge funds, banks, building societies, large complex financial institutions, asset managers and insurers... Almost two-fifths of respondents said ultralow interest rates could also pose a threat to the financial system.
