Leveraged Lending Solutions

With a sustained economic downturn and its severe consequences, banks will require a detailed analysis of ‘stress scenarios’ for leveraged loans.

Given a sustained global economic downturn, we expect the default rate for leveraged loans to increase significantly. Banks will need to strengthen their current monitoring framework due to the higher credit risk in these portfolios. Renewals, refinancing, waivers, maturity extensions and amendments requests will increase, and banks will be required to ensure that risk is factored in appropriately.

Navigate this crisis with the power of credit insights and improved monitoring framework.
