KBRA Releases Research – Coronavirus (COVID-19): Corporate Risk: 12-Month Outlooks by Sector

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases research that examines the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic’s impact on corporate credit.

KBRA has developed sector-specific views on the 12-month trajectory of credit risk due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and resultant global economic dislocation, taking into account the initial U.S. government interventions including Federal Reserve actions and the $2 trillion stimulus package.

In this report, we provide an inclusive industry table with sector rankings from "most at risk" to "least at risk" to illustrate our views on corporate sector credit risk. In addition, we provide a unique forward-looking view as to the likely corporate industry trends to emerge over a three-, six-, and 12-month period as well as an assessment variable for each sector, which describes the shape of each corporate sector’s anticipated recovery.
