Credit Benchmark have released the April Credit Consensus Indicators (CCIs). The CCI is an index of forward-looking credit opinions for US, UK & EU Industrials based on the consensus views of over 20,000 credit analysts at 40+ of the world’s leading financial institutions.

Scores below 50 indicate that credit quality is deteriorating.
