In a May member survey by the CFA Society of the United Kingdom, 755 analysts and investors indicated that they think assets in almost every class are overvalued. The asset class rated as overvalued by the most respondents is government bonds (79 percent), followed by corporate bonds (70 percent). These numbers are up from a mid-2012 survey in which 73 percent of respondents thought government bonds were overvalued and only 51 percent had the same opinion about corporate bonds. Most notably in these categories, the proportion of respondents who think corporate bonds are “very overvalued” jumped from 8 percent to 28 percent over the past year. The CFA Society of the U.K. sees this result as suggesting that a bond bubble is developing.
