COVID-19: Disruption and Opportunities in the US Municipal Market

Wednesday, April 07, 2021
30 Minutes

COVID-19 has been adversely disrupting all sectors of the economy, however, in the United States, few asset classes could experience the magnitude of potential credit deterioration as the US Municipal Market. From October 2020 onwards, municipal issuers started reporting the first audited financial statements for the period ending June 30, 2020. We believe these are the first financial results that reflect the impact of COVID-19 on municipal issuers. Leveraging our Public Finance Automated Scoring Tool (PFAST) we have analyzed the data contained in more than 2,000 reports to understand the credit impact of the pandemic on these entities. In this webinar, we will share specific insights on:

  • The COVID-19 impact on municipal issuers’ credit quality
  • The magnitude and rationale for significant credit scores reductions
  • Actionable best practice on how to analyze public finance risk in a post-pandemic world
  • Approaches to automating the spreading and scoring of your Public Finance issuers
  • Early warning indicators that help you identify deterioration in credit quality
  • Techniques to identify high credit quality municipal issuers (both rated and unrated)
