Outline

With central banks around the world taking a more-dovish stance toward monetary-policy normalization, we look at global credit metrics.

In every region across the globe, the number of companies whose credit ratings have been downgraded has hit a three year high. Median credit ratings in most sectors are near the bottom of their 20-year ranges, implying higher vulnerability to downgrades should conditions materially erode. Where are we in the default cycle? Is there a risk that downgrades of BBB rated companies could cause major market dislocation?
