London, July 18, 2022. Robus Capital, an investor specializing in mid-market credit issues from Europe, expects credit markets to become increasingly choppy, even if they are not currently pricing in any major defaults. “After more than twelve favorable years, including the past two Covid years, the tipping point in credit markets has arrived. The pressure is mounting, and troubled companies will hardly be able to hold out for long,” expects Mark Hoffmann, Portfolio Manager at Robus Capital. Especially non-investment-grade European credit issuers can quickly run into liquidity problems due to interrupted supply chains, galloping inflation and energy security problems.
