- The fear of the global pandemic is normalising and credit spreads are stabilising and bond yields are recovering
- In this environment of heightened risk, our teams are meeting more regularly and assessing the specific risks on all exposures within our portfolios
- Credit risk management is key. Our disciplined process means we leverage the views of our independent credit committee and follow a constant in-depth review of all exposures based on our sophisticated internal ratings model.
- The outlook remains uncertain. Heightened monitoring and a disciplined credit process are critical while continually assessing market shifts to take advantage of opportunities.
