Watch: Global Credit Conditions: July 2020

Credit damage. The COVID-led recession will likely weigh on credit metrics well into 2023 from the combination of lost output and increased debt burdens, threatening corporate solvency.

A different recovery. The shape of recovery will differ from previous crises, with a wide range of outcomes across industries and geographies, and accelerating some secular industry shifts.

Profound political impact. National and international fragmentation could intensify as lowincome populations are suffering disproportionately, exacerbating inequalities and social tensions, while the disruption of critical supply chains revives economic nationalism.

Opportunities. The crisis could present an opportunity for governments to support the recovery through infrastructure investment, supporting a green, digital, and more sustainable economy.
