Business Risk Index - November 2021 Insights

December 7, 2021

In our latest episode, we present the November Business Risk Index results and analysis. CreditorWatch CEO Patrick Coghlan and index creator James O'Donnell from Open Analytics discuss the key insights.

  • Economy fails to bounce back as strongly as expected post-lockdowns.
  • Trade activity continues to fall.
  • Defaults, external administrations, payment arrears and court actions have jumped.
  • Credit enquiries jumped 16.6%, indicating that business confidence is returning.
  • States that shut their borders but kept their internal economies going, such as WA and QLD are seeing their metro areas bounce back fastest.
  • Melbourne and Sydney CBDs remain the worst performing capital city centres with probability of default at historic high-levels due to depressed trade activity continuing post-lockdown.
  • Credit behaviour and performance scores are improving among the hardest-hit Western Sydney suburbs including Bankstown, Burwood, Ashfield and Strathfield.

Business Risk Index - October 2021 Insights

November 10, 2021

In our latest episode, we present the October Business Risk Index results and analysis. CreditorWatch CEO Patrick Coghlan and index creator James O'Donnell discuss the insights.

Our comprehensive October Business Risk Index report contains a number of key insights including:

  • Three of the top five regions in Australia with the lowest risk of default are in regional Victoria – surprising given the heavy and enduring lockdowns the state has been under
  • Expect insolvencies and credit defaults to rise across the country in the short term
  • Trade turnover was weak in October, however, we still expect to see significant growth over the coming quarter
  • The Gold Coast and Western Sydney remain the highest risk regions in the country
  • Regional areas are outperforming urban and city centres. We suspect this is due to industry related factors including strong performance in sectors of the economy that are concentrated in high-performing regional areas such as agribusiness, mining, manufacturing and renewable energy.
