Corporate balance sheet strength amid COVID-19 disruption


We believe that companies with strong balance sheets will be the most resilient during the current bout of economic uncertainty. However Net Debt/EBITDA ratios are up in most sectors of the UK economy, compared with levels seen prior the 2008 financial crisis.  With that in mind, our research team have reviewed their coverage universe to identify companies with the most significant organic resilience – existing balance sheet strength – which will help support them through the challenging months ahead.  We will have an update on themes in some of our sectors over the coming days. The sectors are:

  • Construction
  • Consumer Staples
  • Financials
  • Healthcare
  • Insurance
  • Mining
  • New Energy and Industrial Technology
  • Oil and Industrial Transport
  • Real Estate
  • Staffing
  • Support Services
  • Technology
  • Travel
  • Tobacco
