Credit & Risk Management Panel

15:25 SST / 8:25 CET / 7:25 GMT / 2:25 EST

The year started with the high-demand, high-price pressure of IMO 2020, and just months later saw a complete reversal due to collapsing oil prices and Covid-19 induced demand destruction. As banks pull their financing against a backdrop of bankruptcies and fraudulent activity, understanding the true credit and risk management picture has never been more critical.

With the plethora of unexpected challenges the industry has faced this year, it is easy to forget it also saw the introduction of arguably the most significant piece of legislation it has ever seen: IMO 2020.
