The stable outlook balances these risks against credit-positive considerations linked to Turkey’s large and flexible economy, which continues to grow, albeit at a slower rate, and the government’s strong fiscal track record.

    Policymakers’ increased focus on emission reducing regulation will likely create credit risks for the auto sector worldwide, as it will put pressure on margins and cash flows.

    A formal withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Economic Area and subsequent loss of passporting rights granted under European Union (EU) law would be manageable for most UK-based financial firms, including branches and subsidiaries of non-EU firms, as well as for EU firms with a presence in London. Even if firms move operations from the UK to the EU, the impact on credit fundamentals will likely be moderate, absent other shocks...

    European high-yield bond and rated leveraged loan issuance looks set for a solid month in September. The success of a number of large transactions in the first weeks of the month suggests a significant improvement in demand and risk appetite versus the beginning of the year. This month’s volumes look set to visibly exceed last year’s September volumes of only $1.4 billion. The leveraged loan market appears to be in equally buoyant mood, and we expect significant activity in contrast to last year’s September volumes of only $0.3 billion...

  • China’s Trilemma: Growth, Reform and Stability

    China’s policy makers have three main policy objectives: maintaining reasonably high rates of GDP growth, reforming and rebalancing the economy, and ensuring financial and economic stability. However, against a backdrop of slower growth, capital flow volatility and rising corporate stress, it will be increasingly difficult for these policy objectives to be achieved in unison, which will pose challenges for China’s credit universe. This page provides a centralized source for Moody's research related to key credit issues in China as the country's macroeconomic story continues to unfold.
  • Environmental Risks and Developments

    Concern over environmental change is leading to significant government policy initiatives globally and rising corporate innovation and investment. This heightened attention will lead to disruptive industry change, shifting investor capital allocation strategies and rising input costs related to increased pricing on carbon emissions and water usage. At the same time, severe environmental events, whether natural (earthquakes, hurricanes, droughts and floods) or man-made (oil spills and nuclear accidents), are of growing concern to many market participants who are concerned natural events are increasing in frequency and severity. This page highlights Moody's research on the credit implications of these developing environmental trends.
