Öykü Altuntaş / Istanbul, Sep 29 () - International ratings company Standard & Poor’s released a new report revealing that Turkey is among the most vulnerable countries against the combined effect of three key risks of tightening global liquidity, financial deleveraging and a Chinese slowdown.
The report listed three key risks that emerging market sovereigns have been facing adverse global trends.
Turkey under combined effect of three risks
The “Fed risk”, in this context, was defined in relation with a reduction in global liquidity as the U.S. Federal Reserve eventually raises interest rates, which could lead to an accelerated redirection of capital to advanced economies from emerging markets.
Meanwhile, the unwinding of excessive domestic credit that has built up in recent years in the banking system and in asset prices was called the "deleverage risk."
"China risk" could hurt trading partners across globe
The third key risk was announced as the “China risk” which marks a noticeable slowdown of Chinese economic growth, which could hurt its trading partners around the globe.
To achieve a more nuanced look, Standard & Poor's assessed 22 countries, based on their vulnerability to each of these three risks.
The list showed along with Turkey, Venezuela, Argentina, Colombia and Peru were the emerging market sovereigns that might be the most vulnerable countries against the combined effect of three key risks: tightening global liquidity, financial deleveraging, and a Chinese slowdown.
The ranking also revealed that Mexico, Poland, and the Philippines appeared to be least at risk.
