Financial Statements Series: Lessons learned on corporate credit risk during the COVID-19 pandemic
In the early months of the COVID-19 shutdown, there were widespread fears that the economic shock would lead to massive damage in terms of corporate bankruptcies or “zombification.” Thanks in part to public intervention, the pessimistic scenarios have not materialized, and banks have correspondingly reduced their provisions for bad loans. We will take stock on lessons learned and near-term prospects.

Joining this episode of Financial Statements are:


Nicolas Véron
Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE)


• Şebnem Kalemli-Özcan
Neil Moskowitz Endowed Professor of Economics, University of Maryland

• Atsi Sheth
Managing Director and Global Head of Credit Strategy and Research Group, Moody’s Investors Service
