    Moody's Analytics & Raymond James In Conversation: Aftershock: The Impact of COVID-19 on Lending in the 2nd Half of 2020 – An Update on the U.S. Economy

    The first in our series of updates to the webinars Moody's Analytics & Raymond James hosted in April & May on the impact of COVID-19 on the economy, consumer credit, CRE and U.S. autos. This - our first webinar - will discuss COVID-19's current impact on the U.S. economy.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has caused among the most severe economic downturns in history. The Federal Reserve and federal government are using all of their resources to support the economy through these difficult times. Any economic recovery will be difficult given the ongoing pandemic, mounting credit problems and flagging global economy. Even well-capitalized and profitable community banks and credit unions are not immune from the fallout.

    In this webinar, John Toohig, Head of Whole Loan Trading at Raymond James, and Mark Zandi, Chief Economist of Moody’s Analytics discuss what this means for the industry.
