The New York Society of Security Analysts is presenting Professor Edward Altman who will share his view of the current state of the corporate and sovereign global credit markets. He will present his widely acclaimed new and novel models in predicting sovereign debt markets’ probability of default, contrasting the results with market measures and traditional rating agency and bank models and forecasts.
Dr. Altman will also explore the current yield, spread, and outlook for US, Canadian, and Mexican default as well as provide commentary on future risks, especially for the US. Also during this presentation, he will utilize a number of groundbreaking models for analyzing the risk/return opportunities in the high-yield and leveraged loan markets, as well as implications for turnaround management and distressed debt analysts. Finally, Dr. Altman will explore the challenges and opportunities inherent in managing a distressed debt portfolio in the US and abroad, including the introduction of a new distressed/defaulted bond ETF.
