U.S. senior fixed-income investors are taking a more conservative view of cross asset credit conditions on the back of recent macroeconomic concerns, according to a Fitch Ratings fixed-income forum survey of fixed income professionals, conducted in June.

Investors expressed a more downbeat view of U.S. growth. In January, 43% of investors saw growth above 3% over the coming year. Now, however, they are roughly split (51%/47%) between those that believe U.S. growth will be moderate — in a range of 2% to 3% — and those expecting weaker growth of below 2%.
