Latvian Default Risks Drop to Three-Year Low on Moody’s Report
The cost of insuring Latvian bonds against non-payment fell to the lowest in three years after Moody’s Investors Service yesterday raised its outlook on the Baltic country’s debt to positive from stable.
Latvian credit-default swaps declined to 194.8 basis points at 10:30 a.m. in London, the cheapest level since June 2008, CMA prices show. Credit-default swap prices drop as investor perceptions of the borrower’s creditworthiness improve.
