KBRA Releases Macro-Market Research: Global Sovereign Debt Update


Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases a macro-market research report,
"Global Sovereign Debt Update." In this report, KBRA discusses trends in
leverage accumulation based on data collected from the Bank for
International Settlements.

Global debt has grown modestly in aggregate terms in recent years. This
trend reflects the modest growth in advanced industrialized economy
debt, which accounts for most of global debt. Meanwhile, the faster rise
in emerging market debt fueled the uptick. Debt dynamics in advanced
economies, in part, reflects progress towards repairing government
balances in the Euro Area as well as deleveraging across the real
economy. Emerging market debt accumulation has been evident across all
economic sectors of the economy.
