We were delighted to partner with Fitch Ratings for the release of our new IIF Global Debt Monitor which looked at the implications of the massive surge in debt ratios triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This webinar featured a short presentation of the main takeaways from our new Global Debt Monitor. This was followed by an expert panel discussion of key challenges for investors facing the fourth great debt wave of the past four decades.
