Credit Crunch – a paradox. It has never been cheaper to borrow money...

yet it is debt that is now crushing many companies and corporate valuations. World equity markets are being battered by turbulence of historical magnitude, and there is a huge flow of information about the decline. The news is largely dominated by the stock market, and events in the fixed income market are not being scrutinised to the same extent. Most investors are also a little less familiar with how this part of the securities market actually works, especially during times of crisis like this. We will highlight some of the challenges that the fixed income market is facing, as well as the opportunities that follow in the wake of a crisis.

It was only a month or so ago that positive figures were released showing unemployment in the EU and the US was lower than for many years, and the stock market sentiment for 2020 remained upbeat. Few people regarded the coronavirus, which had already impacted China, as a major threat to the market. The uncertainty today is extremely high, to say the least, and the consequences of the coronavirus are difficult to exaggerate.

Climbing a wall of worry is an old saying on Wall Street that describes how a strong stock market can handle or even be spurred on by bad news. This describes 2019 very well.
