The article discusses the results of the 2008 Adviser Fund Index (AFI) survey. The questionnaire was compiled by Fund Strategy and Financial Express. The results indicate a mood of growing uncertainty which can be seen in a widening of the spread in the panelists expectations for interest rates. Much of the investors' uncertainty centers on the American economy where a technical recession is expected. The forecast is upbeat for Asia Pacific, excluding Japan and the emerging markets.
