Credit Market Pulse August 2018 Issue

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:

  • Regional and political risk: Escalating trade wars negatively impacted specific countries and sectors of the economy -- tariffs on Canadian commodities threaten the country’s economy, while potential impacts on Switzerland’s monetary policy made market participants question, “should investors seek a safe haven with the franc?”
  • Industry risk: Global credit risk increased significantly, with all sectors exhibiting spikes in risk over the previous quarter with Consumer Discretionary being the sector with the most defaulted assets.
  • Movers and Shakers: North America provided the three firms with the largest deteriorations in market-implied credit quality during the quarter.
  • Ratings trends: We take a specific look at Carillion Plc, which filed for liquidation on January 15, 2018 with debt and liabilities in excess of £1.5 billion.

These are essential insights you can only get from S&P Global Market Intelligence. And best of all, we will make it possible for you to bring this information in-house to incorporate into your own credit analysis and strategy.
