KBRA Releases Research – Coronavirus (COVID-19): KBRA’s Sovereign Ratings Through the Looking Glass

NEW YORK--()--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases commentary focusing on KBRA’s rated sovereign portfolio. KBRA expects that most countries in our portfolio can adequately absorb COVID-19 risk at their present rating levels. In the near term, rating actions could happen more quickly for sovereigns where liquidity and debt service risks are becoming meaningfully worse, or where there are visibly heightened debt sustainability concerns. Further out, rating actions could follow as economic fallout, fiscal impacts, and policy solutions become clearer, providing a higher resolution picture of longer-term credit risk.
