As the credit cycle turns, what will be the impact across different regions and sectors?

Moody’s Credit Trends will focus on credit outlooks and risks for 2019, as well as the longer-term vulnerabilities to watch out for.  

The event series will engage key market players – investors, issuers, economists, regulators and credit analysts – and look beyond the headlines to provide a comprehensive market view for the year ahead.  

Building on the success of our annual Credit Outlook conferences over the past years, the new Credit Trends series delivers even more global insights by combining investor, issuer and analyst views on key credit drivers for 2019.
