The results of the Bank of EnglandÃ¢Â€Â™s twice-yearly systemic risk survey, published Monday, show that 40% of those quizzed cited falling property prices as a potential risk to the stability of the financial system. 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.
