Fixed income managers expect recession to remain

European fixed income fund managers believe that the recession in the eurozone will deepen in 2013 and that even Germany could experience an economic slowdown.

However, the managers also think that Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, is doing a good job and the political landscape in Europe is more stable

The opinions are found in a report from S&P Capital IQ Fund Research and cover 44 managers from 53 funds.

The general consensus was that Europe, as a whole, would remain in recession throughout 2013.

The reasons for Germany’s possible economic slowdown are its export-led market faltering under reduced demand from Europe and China.

The managers also expect France’s woes are set to continue well into 2013.
