Navigating financial uncertainty with data-driven insights and actionable intelligence

Wednesday, June 12, 2024
1 hour

Diverging inflation and interest rates, alongside geopolitical and economic uncertainty are making forecasting extremely difficult, leading to more variable market expectations than usual for the rest of 2024 and beyond.

After signaling its intention to cut policy rates in January, the Federal Reserve saw its officials conclude earlier in May that they wouldn’t begin rate cuts in the face of a sticky inflation situation. European central banks have already begun to reduce rates, leading to a potential decoupling of monetary policy from the US.

In this webinar, we will cover the latest market observation from our data and key indicators and discuss the impact on risk assets from shifting interest rates.

Key highlights:

  • The latest expectations on rate-cuts and refinancing risk
  • Which types of data reveal the sectors that are most exposed to refinancing risk?
  • What impact do the anticipated rate cuts have on global corporate defaults?
  • The outlook for M&A and investor activism
  • Can investors avoid bad credits that destroy value in a portfolio?
