Overview: In a special "Insight" piece for the Financial Times on June 21, 2011, Professor Edward Altman predicted that the next European country to be hit with a financial crisis would be Italy. Three weeks later, that country's cost of financing spiked and the ECB had to step in to buy its bonds. In this Webinar, Dr. Altman will explain his new "Bottom-Up" approach to assessing default risk of sovereigns and also present his outlook for corporate high-yield default and recovery rates for 2012.
