Fitch Describes Emerging Markets as "Vulnerable" to Debt Load

News note:

Bloomberg runs this article  which states that Fitch is warning that emerging markets are vulnerable to debt that has grown now to over $19 Trillion. Just ten years ago the number was $5 Trillion. Below is an excerpt.


"Outstanding debt securities from developing nations have ballooned to $19 trillion from $5 trillion a decade earlier, the credit-rating company (Fitch Ratings) said in a report. Despite the development of local-currency bond markets, borrowers will be hobbled by higher external borrowing costs, a stronger dollar and slowdown of capital inflows, it said."
