Credit Pulse: market update - 15 January 2021

How does the fixed-income team at the international business of Federated Hermes see this year shaping up? How are automakers positioning themselves for an all-electric future amid the coronavirus-induced turmoil? And what challenges face the electric vehicle (EV) industry in the coming years? These are some of the questions that the team answers in our latest Credit Pulse webcast.

In this month’s Credit Pulse, Andrew Jackson, Head of Fixed Income, and Fraser Lundie, CFA, Head of Credit, discuss year-end outcomes and how they see the new year shaping up, before being joined by Senior Credit Analyst, Ilana Elbim.
