Corporate loan default risk spiked at US G-Sibs in Q1

Most systemic US banks raised the probability of default (PD) of their corporate loan portfolios in the first quarter, likely anticipating a wave of coronavirus-induced business failures.

The median weighted-average PD for corporate exposures across the eight US global systemically important banks (G-Sibs) was 1.39% as of end-March, up from 1.22% three months prior and at its highest level since Q4 2016. It was also the largest one-quarter change in the median since Q2 2016.
