One third of US respondents and two thirds of foreign respondents said they had tightened lending standards on such products during that time.

Around 55 per cent of US respondents also indicated that they had tightened standards on prime mortgage products, an increase of 15 per cent from the 40 per cent registered in the October survey.

A large but unsurprising 85 per cent of the 39 American banks offering non-traditional mortgage products also said they had tightened lending standards during that time.
