Global Financial Stability Assessment

Source: International Monetary Fund

From Press Release:

The global financial system is far more stable than it was six months ago, but a number of challenges remain. The International Monetary Fund’s latest Global Financial Stability Report says that recent rallies in financial markets will not be sustained, and new risks are likely to emerge, unless policymakers address key vulnerabilities.

The report focuses on two persistent old risks, which are the legacy of the crisis.

In spite of the recent improvements in market conditions, credit is not adequately flowing in the euro area periphery.

• Small and medium-sized companies, which are the backbone of employment, are particularly affected by the increased cost and limited supply of bank credit.

• The periphery corporate sector is also facing a large debt overhang, which was built up before the crisis. The report identifies a weak tail of listed companies in the periphery that need to reduce their debt over time. The required debt reduction by these companies accounts for a fifth of the total debt of listed periphery corporates analyzed in the GFSR. This poses a challenge to their economies and financial stability.
