More than half of investors believe that a dialing-down of the Federal Reserve’s bond-buying program will negatively impact the U.S. economy near-term, but have a stabilizing influence long-term, new research reveals.

UBS Wealth Management Americas discloses this finding in the fourth edition of “UBS Investor Watch,” a survey of 4,450 U.S. investors ages 25 and older who have $250,000-plus in investable assets. The study analyzes investors’ financial sentiments, their economic outlook and concerns, personal goals and concerns and timely topics, such as the impact of the sequester and the fiscal cliff agreement.
