House prices could fall for two years: Citigroup
London, July 20, 2008
Citigroup chairman Win Bischoff has warned that house prices in Britain and the United States are likely to keep falling for another two years.
The chairman of one of the world's most powerful banks told the BBC in an interview that he expects it will take two years for the markets to stabilise.
He also said he expected the credit crunch could continue through until 2009.
Bischoff told the BBC that there would be redundancies at the bank, which employs 12,000 people in Britain, and warned that some of them would be compulsory. - Reuters
