Look beyond the short-term shocks into long term risks

Moody’s Credit Trends provides forward looking views that focus on the key credit outlook shifts for the year ahead and long-term market trends and vulnerabilities.

We will take a closer look at what comes next in the credit cycle; what rising trade and protectionism tensions mean to credit; what are the key regional trends across sectors and other topical questions.  

Credit Trends is a unique platform to engage with key market participants -  senior investors, issuers, intermediaries and credit analysts - and gain a deeper understanding of the impact of global, regional and local credit trends across sectors.
