ACT Webinar: Rating reviews during a time of business interruption

12:30 -13:15 BST, Tuesday, 21 April 2020

During this time of unprecedented business interruption, the ACT and Fitch Ratings webinar provided an open-door look at how Fitch Ratings approach rating reviews. 

At a time of severe market volatility and unprecedented business disruption, corporates are borrowing extensively to weather the situation. Ratings become of ever greater importance, and yet, loss of business income by many, means perfectly healthy firms, in normal times, are now rather less so.

This joint ACT and Fitch Ratings webinar explored how Fitch Ratings had adapted to the COVID-19 crisis, both with respect to the uncertainty and the pace of developments. 

The webinar covered:

•             The assumptions Fitch Ratings were using in rating cases
•             How they translated rating cases into actions
•             Whether any of the criteria had changed or been amended
•             How they viewed liquidity during the crisis. 
And was followed by Q&As.
