Corona, the pandemic which hit the whole world economy’s created a significant impact on this industry. The entire industry, whether financial, technological, labor, or on-field, suffered a serious setback. At such a point, it becomes essential to make sure and calculate how much recession we have faced in the decades and how we can overcome this by being more analytical and understanding the numbers.

Therefore by making a calculation of the GDP and GNP of all the nations and worldwide industries, track of the US mortgages, and understanding the Chinese market.

Beginning with the basic facts, what would be the path ahead for all of us?

According to the statistics, we are hit by a global recession not seen in the whole century, and it would take decades to get over it if we are in the same conditions, and we would not grow out of it.

This created a drastic impact on all the industries related to finance, and by taking a look at all of it, we get to the following present condition.

Compensation of the worker’s

The workers suffered the most since the insurance premium offered to them got sacrificed. The standards may not return to normal till 2023 as per the predictions.

There is a slow recovery since the rates dropped down to 14.6% in total and there is no scope of improvement for the same. If the recovery is slower than the predicted baseline, then it would get a challenge to gear up on the quarters, associated with the same. As soon as the workforce and labor cut-down we would observe a decline in the comp premiums. It could go down to 20.8%.

Capital markets and the banks

We are in a financial crisis after the global recession of 2008, and the banks are getting asked for government-led schemes that would help the growth of the population as a whole.

From the start, if the world lock-down the banks had to cut the interest rates and create a significant change in the percent of slabs existing. The interest rate cut started a decline in the overall growth of the bank’s profit generation and cash flow. The significant drop in equity was a great concern for all the investors. Their profits and shares got sacrificed because of this. The credit approval process under the KERT faced a significant amount of rock bottom since the profit split models failed at an umpteen level, and we could not get over them. The liquidity of models and impact for legal entities got restructured, and it impacted the actual liquidity of the market as a whole.

Assets and insurance

The insurance and asset industry got majorly hit by this global pandemic. Since all the prospects of their growth got converted into a macabre dream the people involved in the field did not wish to dream.

Some lessons got undertaken after the ebola and SARS outbreak of 2015 and, 2004 respectively.

We could see the return of equity getting sacrificed. The intragroup insurance was affected at sessional levels. The rationality of new contracts and profit bases contingent commission got impacted. The cost-plus methods with appropriate markup failed, and the allocation of new assets got created, leading to a split loss in the investment functions.

A lot of funds faced problems in meeting any kind-of investor redemption. Mancos, AIFM, these firms, and their financial regulators got significantly impacted. The new normal for the TP IMPACT is difficult to assess since it has hampered worker’s insurance, banking, acidity and liquidity, and basic investing in all the fields. The stocks and rate changes are on a larger scale towards shift change and are progressing towards that.

Supply chain and cost structure

The supply chain is a corporate key towards risk management, and we were able to observe a drastic drift in the demand and cost supply during these nine months. A whole cost structure of various organizations needed to get altered for the obligations offered by the government.


COVID created a severe impact on the finance industry by targeting the primary facilities involved with it. It caused a huge problem and created an urgency to get brutal transparency with the current flow system. The overall crisis changed the scenario in numerous ways mentioned above. Currently, we need to restructure the cost structure, banking, and investment culture, look at the trading and stocks, work upon the monitoring of your organization, work culture, and cost-effectiveness to stay on a cycle moving towards better scaling.
