    Moody's Analytics & Raymond James In Conversation: COVID-19’s Impact on Lending

    COVID-19 threatens the record-long economic expansion and changes the outlook for even well-capitalized and profitable community banks and credit unions.

    March 2020 produced a dramatic shift in “business as usual” for these lenders. Many of their customers and employees are now sheltering in place at home. In their communities, businesses deemed non-essential have been shuttered, and local governments are scrambling to address the growing health care needs. In this environment, some community banks and credit unions have closed their branches to protect their staff and the public.

    John Toohig, Head of Whole Loan Trading at Raymond James, and Mark Zandi, Chief Economist of Moody’s Analytics have an in-depth conversation about what this all means for the industry.
