December 19, 2014   //   By , Thomas Yagel and Silvina Aldeco Martinez

Welcome to the sixth issue of Credit Market Pulse, a publication for the credit risk industry that provides a holistic overview of the credit health of global capital markets.

In this issue, we look at global corporate credit risk conditions, with a particular focus on consumer discretionary and consumer staples companies in North America and Western Europe.

Report Highlights:

  • More than 50 North American and European listed retail companies are expected to default over the next 12 months, according to our Probability of Default (PD) Market Signals model
  • Median PD levels of corporations from North America remain lower than their counterparts in other developed economies
  • Risk levels of the S&P 500®, S&P Europe 350® and S&P Pan Asia BMI® have been negatively affected by volatility in the energy sector
