We are delighted to partner with Fitch Ratings for our IIF Global Debt Monitor. 

This one-hour event on Wednesday February 22 featured a short staff presentation on the main takeaways from our flagship Global Debt Monitor: A Many-Faceted Crisis.  Following the presentation, our expert panel focused on key policy, market and economic developments shaping the outlook, including debt management challenges for mature market economies, strains in corporate debt markets and pockets of acute debt vulnerability in emerging and frontier markets.  With a softer U.S. dollar and easing inflationary pressures, we also considered the implications of a rebound in global investor appetite for emerging and frontier market debt, as well as trends in domestic debt markets.
