Aug. 28 2018 — In this issue, get actionable ideas around sovereign and regional trends, political risk, industry shifts, changes in the creditworthiness of some of the biggest movers and shakers in the market, and post-mortems on recent defaults.
Key highlights from this issue include:

- Movers and Shakers: North America provided the three firms with the largest deteriorations in market-implied credit quality during the quarter.
