The Covid-19 crisis obviously caught us off guard by the speed with which it spread and the force of the virus. We had to deal with it by adapting to a new environment and new ways of working. Countries in Europe are now learning to live with the virus, and its impact is not behind us by any means, and the coming months could be crucial for our industry.

Transatlantic relations will be completely different depending on who becomes the next president. It is less US fiscal policy—which would be expansionary in any case—then international relations that are at stake for the next four years.

The European Leveraged Loans market—like other credit markets—suffered from a sudden and indiscriminate market price decrease at the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis in March, mainly resulting from lack of liquidity across all sub-investment markets and concerns about future rating downgrades and increased probability of defaults.

After the first wave of the Covid-19 outbreak in China and East Asia, and the second wave in Western Europe and North America, a third wave now looks to be building in several Emerging Markets (EM) and frontier countries, says Amundi Asset Management. EM and frontier countries may be able to benefit from the experiences and best practices then put in place in countries affected by the pandemic earlier. However, most of them do not have well-equipped health systems and lack the resources to deal with a health emergency vs developed countries. Covid-19 will have very significant negative effects on the economic outlooks for EM, mostly leading to recessions.

Amundi Asset Management said the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak should prove “short-lived” to the first half of the year with the mobilisation of fiscal tools, leaving the medium-term potential growth of economies intact.
