The ECB sought repayments How sovereign is sovereign credit risk? book euro debt which made it impossible for countries to manage and coordinate their own fiscal and monetary policies. Analyse sovereign debt issuance in today's capital markets Interpret macroeconomic and other quantitative data which impact sovereign credit ratings Integrate qualitative risk factors into the risk assessment Differentiate the rating methodologies for supranational agencies from those of sovereign obligors Appreciate how the rating agencies assess risks Discuss the UN principles on distressed sovereign debt recovery and legal process Define situations of default with respect to international external sovereign debt and domestic sovereign debt State how investors can predict improvements and deteriorations in sovereign credit quality Undercover the dos and don'ts for your internal rating tool and consider the rating agencies' modus operandi. Indeed, if insolvency occurs, it generally means that your pledged assets are liquidated to pay off your liabilities. A government given direct control of the printing press has an incentive to give higher rates of inflation than the public desires, if only to pay off the debts it incurs. The inflation tax is an extremely attractive way for a state to pay for its liabilities. But many LDCs did not get the anticipated economic growth and increased exports that would generate more foreign currency and allow them to repay the mainly US dollar debt.

Foreign currency depreciation is usually greater than domestic inflation when a national government chooses inflation. The major exception is when a restructuring prevents an anticipated default. Greece was obliged to restructure its debt in The lack of repayment caused these emerging economies to refinance their sovereign loans continuously, increasing interest rates. Owning bonds issued by several governments in different parts of the world is the way to achieve diversification within the sovereign debt market.

With the ECB still firmly committed against direct bailouts to specific member states, the increase in yields is not directly attributable to inflation risk. Importance of ESG for sovereign risk Integrating ESG into sovereign risk analysis adds a holistic and long-term perspective that is very much aligned with investing in sovereign fixed income. Foreign exchange traders and investors face the risk that a foreign central bank will change its monetary policy so that it affects currency trades. It was modeled after the German Bundesbank to be wholly separate from the political realm, and thus faced no conflict of interest with eurozone governments when their debt loads became unmanageable. It may not be wise policy, but to argue that such measures amount to a sovereign risk is drawing a very long bow indeed.
