Germany faces major demographic challenges from an ageing population
June 14th 2019 (11 mins)
Mathias Kuelpmann, Heiko Peters
In this episode of Moody’s Talks, Mathias Kuelpmann, SVP in the Financial Institutions Group, and Heiko Peters, AVP-Analyst in the Sovereign Risk Group, discuss the credit impact of rapid population ageing in Germany. Rising pension costs and other expenses related to changing demographics will weigh on the country’s growth and be credit negative for Germany’s economic and fiscal strength in the coming decades. However, we believe Germany is well positioned to withstand those challenges, thanks to its strong current fiscal position, high and stable household savings and low private leverage. Furthermore, the demographic changes will also bring opportunities for some financial and non-financial companies as they respond to the changing needs of the population.
