ISTANBUL (AA) - Inflation and rising interest rates remain the most significant watch items for global credit risks, Fitch Ratings said Thursday.
"The underlying macro picture for global credit has improved since the beginning of the year, although tighter lending conditions and hawkish central bank policy underscores the outlook for a cyclical deceleration," it said in a report.
Risks also include commercial real estate and rising challenges to China’s post-coronavirus recovery.
"Main long-term and emergent risks are also unchanged, focusing on climate change, demographic challenges, cyber-conflict and the rapid roll-out of AI as a technological disrupter," it added.
