Further to the strong market interest in last week's webcast on the macroeconomic and credit impact of the coronavirus, we are launching a series of weekly webcasts.
Every Friday, we will provide you with regular updates on our view of how the current unprecedented circumstances are affecting credit risk and ratings across asset classes. We will define the agenda and speakers each week based on the events, most notable rating actions, and the questions we receive from market participants.
S&P Global Ratings strives to provide investors with timely, transparent, and forward-looking credit opinions. In the current volatile circumstances, we continue to aim to provide you and all market participants with the essential intelligence needed to make decisions with conviction.
Joining Head of Global Ratings Practices, Craig Parmelee, on the agenda for this week will be:
- Paul Gruenwald, Global Chief Economist, sharing our latest update on the global macro view;
- Gregg Lemos-Stein, Head of Analytics & Research for Corporates, explaining how S&P Global Ratings monitors and updates its ratings during these exceptional times;
- Nick Kraemer, Head of Ratings Performance Analytics, providing a summary of the rating actions to date;
- Plus, an update on the industries most impacted by credit deterioration, each covered by industry ratings sector leads.
Remember to submit your questions in advance on the registration page. We will do our best to answer as many as possible.
