In 2020, Argentina's regional governments face an increasingly challenging operating environment, characterized by national policy changes and rising social pressures that will undermine their financial results and ability to refinance debt.

Our stable outlook for the global asset management sector is supported by firms’ manageable debt burdens and margin resiliency, as well as sustained investor demand for higher-fee, higher-yield products. However, earnings growth remains a persistent challenge.

The outlook for EMEA non-financial corporates has turned negative from stable. We expect continued lacklustre economic growth combined with weaker demand in some key markets to weigh on companies’ performance. The default rate is likely to increase in 2020, but from a very low base.

Continuing economic growth, good insurance sector capitalization, and positive pricing trends support our stable outlook. Sector challenges include widespread losses from natural catastrophes, rising liability claims, and low yields on investments, all of which constrain profit margins.

The outlook for global banks is negative, reflecting slowing long-term economic growth trends and growing political risks. A return to monetary easing and the use of negative interest rates in some regions will add to profitability pressures. These challenges will outweigh banks’ strong capital and liquidity.

Our 2020 outlook for Latin American non-financial corporates is stable, supported by modest economic growth, along with companies’ solid balance sheets and adequate liquidity.

Conditions for North American non-financial companies will remain stable but fragile in 2020. Weakening global economies and multiple global political flashpoints pose considerable risk, but a resolution of US-China trade tensions among others would support US GDP and corporate earnings.
